The project presents the specific features of Ljubljana from a different angle by redefining the concept of art in public spaces. The first to focus on art interventions in public spaces in Slovenia was the artists’ collective OHO; this still remains to be researched using contemporary methodology, and critically reflected. Museum in the Street project attempts to do this by focusing on the representations of the city, urban identity, exploring / mapping the city, interventions in the city, urban visions.

With the new global order and the ensuing different conceptualization of space, public space has literally disappeared. We are faced with a new spatiality, which cannot be categorized in the same way as before. There is no longer a single public space; now it is divided into spaces of various identities that are not based only on positivism, but include also a negative component. Negativity is understood in this context as a part of the identity of a given social group, and the antagonism which characterizes its identity also prevents it from becoming enclosed in itself.

In the context of the Museum in the Street project, artists, theoreticians and activists will explore and intervene in the so-called urban antagonisms, that is, those aspects of the city that are both present and at the same time invisible, marginalized, repressed, making them in this way visible in a new, artistic context. The project has three main topics: urban extremes (psychological particularities of the city – trash, diseases, sexuality, crime, rumors/gossip), urban margins (parallel strategies of survival, self-organizing practices, migrants, workers’ hostels, prisons) and urban antagonisms (partisan monuments and modernist architecture).

Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: It's a bit hard to access this old, hidden — and certainly completely forgotten — URL in a desktop browser (privacy error, but you can overpass it), I had more luck on the phone (screenshots). It's certainly an amazing find: it contains some of the rare online works before the year 2000 which I was unable to find at the current AE Future Lab website It's a pity that they don't take proper care of the past and older works they have on their servers. It also says a lot about how much new and recent works are actually worth and what fate awaits them in a few years.
Still in the basement, reorganizing my archive. Today's find: @artpress.revue, November 1999, Annick Bureaud, Utopies distribuées; and my 'e/motion HELP – is there anybody out there?'
The days are hot, so I'm cooling down in the basement while reorganizing my archive: @beauxarts_magazin, November 2003 – Sprinkling Menstrual Navigator becoming part of the @centrepompidou permanent collection
Tidying and reorganizing my archive, because it's too messy and I can't find things. The 1999 COMTECart (@cynetart today) Festival catalog had a cover with a graphic from my work b.ALT.ica. The poster as well, but I can't find it.  ●
