WELCOME TO THE BIENNIAL ARCHIVE WEBSITE

bienale.si

The new website of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts has been conceived as an overview of Biennial events from 1955 to the present day. It presents one of the oldest international art events that began with the desire to show a graphic map of the world in Ljubljana. With the introduction of the curatorial approach after 2001, the limitations to a single medium were dispelled and it began to develop into a museum and out-of-museum entity reflecting contemporary art and curatorial practice. The website presents the structural features of each Biennial with lists of artists, prize winners and jurors. The artistic credo of the Biennial is brought closer through the photo galleries and descriptions of the Biennial's main exhibitions, the traditional exhibitions of the prize winners and the accompanying exhibitions. A special section is dedicated to Biennial publications. The Biennial Archive website is conceived as a growing document of a diverse segment of cultural heritage. It is upgraded with the research findings on the history of the Biennial of Graphic Arts as well as topical news to keep you informed about related current events.

At the end of the biennale

The 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts, Iskra Delta, came to a successful close on Sunday. In 72 days, 22 events took place, 4 prizes were awarded, and 57 artists and a great number of speakers participated in imagining the future. We extend our sincere thanks to all participants, curators, organisers, supporters and visitors.

The Biennale, which we launched at the beginning of the pandemic, was originally conceived as a production, presentation and theory platform for cross-genre creators of the Millennial and Zoomer generation, who are finding their way in the subterrain of the cyber world. The splitting of reality and the dissolution of linear causal temporality through the internet and rapid technological progress have opened up the possibility of receiving messages from other worlds and timelines, which artists, musicians, curators, writers, designers and other agents have woven into a world-building mission, creating scenarios for the future and reimagining the present.

The award recipients of the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts

The International Jury consisting of Lovro Japundžić, Jen Kratochvil, Sam Lackey and Poka-Yio decided that the Grand Prix of the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts goes to Johannes Paul Raether.
The Jury presented the Research Residency Award to Mario Mu, who also received the Audience Award, and a Special Mention from the Jury went to the BCAA System collective.

Congratulations to all the prize winners of the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts!
