Missions and objectives
Established in 2000, SCCA, Center for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana (a successor to the Soros Centre for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana, 1993–1999) is a model of a flexible and internationally active organisation for layering and comprehensively connecting programs and activities in the field of contemporary visual and new media arts. Our diverse activities address artists, curators, theorists, experts, critics and general public in the fields of visual and new media arts. They trigger artistic, discursive and social practices and are rooted in the interdisciplinary approach and intense international cooperation.
The World of Art, School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing was introduced in 1996/1997 and is still the sole programme in Slovenia aimed towards practical and theoretical education in the field of curatorial practices.
DIVA Station is a physical and web archive of video art which is being developed since 2005 at SCCA-Ljubljana with the intent to research, document, present and archive video/media art.
