International Arts and Culture Programs


Artservis is a new web tool for artists, theoreticians and administrators of contemporary art, operating in/with/from Slovenia!

It supports the independent and competent operation of individuals and organizations involved in contemporary art.

The main principles are free public access and information-share built through the network of the Artservis' users.



PlatfromaSCCA, the journal of SCCA-Ljubljana, is focused on the themes that would contribute considerably to the understanding of the contemporary art practice and its context.

Apart from providing the information on the centre's activities, we publish original texts and translations from the fields of art theory, critical theory and art criticism.

With the special section entitled Open Scene we wish to stimulate also writers from the younger generation, not yet experienced writers to offer us their contributions.


The annual educational program aims to cover the gap in both theory and practice in contemporary art. It is comprised of a 10-month curator course (conceiving and realisation of the exhibition under mentorship), a series of public lectures, study exchanges and excursions.



Sixteen selected artists were invited to actively participate with their scenarios and artistic concepts in the creation of their Artist’s Profile on the World Wide Web. The aim is to involve individual artists into the use of the Internet as both a tool and a potential means of expression.
