IF SLOVENIA WERE... CURATED BY KLAVDIJ SLUBAN

 IF SLOVENIA WERE K.Sluban

 

“The project “If Slovenia were…” represents a photographic vision of the country through the eyes of 19 contemporary Slovenian photographers. All of the series were developed specifically for this project between 2015 and 2018. The participating photographers were selected in an open call. Through distinct individual expressions, the authors articulate their own vision and interpretation of the country they live in. “If Slovenia were…” shows the different layers of Slovenia nowadays through the feeling these young photographers (the average age is 34) carry within themselves. The end of Yugoslavia and its war (1991-2001) are far behind them. New refugees cross their country. Themes rank from globalized suburbs and growing malls to family life and the inner self. The perception is focused as much on Slovenia nowadays as the place each of these 19 photographers has within this society.
