Presentations of the selected artists on the Internet
In the framework of the Internet & The Arts programme by the
SCCA Network (Soros Centers for Contemporary Arts Network), and
in co-operation with Ljudmila
(Ljubljana Digital Media Lab), SCCA-Ljubljana
has conceived the Internet Portfolio project in 1996.
The project engages individual
artists into the use of the Internet as both a tool and a potential
means of expression and facilitates them to prepare in co-operation
with the experts their Artists Profiles on the World Wide Web. The
process of work comprises the basic instruction of the artists in
the new medium, conceptual design of the Profile, elaboration of
the scenario, realisation, and further supplementation and updating
of the web site.
Internet Portfolio is not
focused on net.art. Nevertheless, the individual projects have been
so inventive and diverse in their approach that they escaped by
far the repackaging routine of conventional presentations of different
institutions and individuals on the Internet.
At the same time they represent a valuable database and excellent
promotional material that is easy accessible to international professionals
and users, thus (also copied and distributed on CD-ROM) initiating
and encouraging international (co-) operation.
Until now in the framework
of the Internet Portfolio project 20 selected artists and groups
active in Slovenia have made their presentations on the World Wide
Web: Inštitut za domače raziskave, Žiga Koritnik, Milena Kosec,
Marko Košnik, Marko A. Kovačič, Damijan Kracina, Darij Kreuh, P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E.
Muzej sodobne umetnosti, Nataša Prosenc, Mojca Marija Pungerčar,
Franc Purg, Rene Rusjan, STRIPCORE, Apolonija Šušteršič, Petra Varl,
Matej A. Vogrinčič, Janja Vrabec, Muzej Premoderne Umetnosti, Katarina
