V življenju vsakogar od nas so ljudje, katerih vpliv nam pomaga določiti smer. Nekateri so dobri, drugi manj. Čeprav se tega včasih niti ne zavemo ali se s tem ne strinjamo, smo v... More > veliki meri produkt naše okolice. Stopnja materialnega bogastva pogojuje naš socialni status. Oboje prispeva k temu, kakšno mnenje imamo o sebi in tako kot vidimo sebe, pričakujemo, da nas vidijo tudi drugi. Materija premakne materijo, ko pa materije nimaš, ne moreš premakniti ničesar. Ob zavedanju sebe s svojo dediščino in vsem, kar mi je bilo dano, se podajam v nepoznano, brez posebnih ciljev ali navdihov, spremlja me le nagon po samoohranitvi. Usoda ni bila vedno prijazna z mano, a nekakšen velik blagoslov je tu in tam uravnotežil temne sile, ki so v mojem življenju prevladovale večino časa.< Less

This book, instigated by the unjust sentencing and incarceration of Janez Janša, president of the by far largest opposition party, the Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and former Prime... More > Minister of Slovenia, is a compilation of lives of thirteen political prisoners, Janez Janša, Aung San Suu Kyi, Benazir Bhutto, Carlos Menem, Benigno Aquino Jr., Mahathma Gandhi, Bertrand Russell, Nelson Mandela, Andrei Sakharov, Antonio Gramsci, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Martin Luther King Jr. and Iulia Timoshenko. All the text were compiled from open sources, especially Wikipedia. Governments often say they have no political prisoners, only prisoners held under the normal criminal law. This compilation includes cases where the term “political” refers to a “political trial” and “political imprisonment” of persons who are accused and sentenced for crimes in blatantly unfair trials that have no resemblance to what we have come to accept in democratic societies that proclaim the rule of law as one of their greatest values.< Less

Covered in detail by a Slovenian author who has visited, researched and recorded the existing remains. This book deals mainly with two fortification systems controlling the passage through the Ljubljana Gap. These are the eastern part of the Vallo Alpino, built by Fascist Italy, and the Rupnik Line, built by the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in the first half of the 20th century. While Vallo Alpino, especially those along the border with France, was to some degree known, hardly anybody had ever heard about the Rupnik Line. Even within the borders of the former Yugoslavia these fortifications were either unheard of or forgotten. Illustrated with 167 maps, plans, sketches, and wartime as well as present day photos of the remains of the bunkers, turrets and other fortifications.< Less

eBook (PDF): $2.99
Alamut is a novel by Vladimir Bartol, first published in 1938 in Slovenian, dealing with the story of Hassan-i Sabbah and the Hashshashin, and named after their Alamut fortress.

In the French capital, he met with the Slovene literary critic Josip Vidmar, who introduced him to the story of Hassan-i Sabbah.

When it was originally published, the novel was sarcastically dedicated to Benito Mussolini. This book was one of the inspirations for the video game series Assassin's Creed.

Marko Batista: Temporary Objects and Hybrid Ambients By Andreja Hribernik & Janez Janša
Paperback: $32.40
Prints in 3-5 business days
Marko Batista is an artist working at the intersection of science and art. By creating hybrid technological, electromagnetic or chemical systems, he confronts the mystification of technology while... More > also opening up new ways of thinking about technology. With his experimental systems, which bring together the abovementioned fields, he expands the sphere of human perception and the phenomenology of unstable audio-visual systems in space and time. This book brings together four different perspectives on Marko Batista’s work. Jurij Krpan’s text analyses Marko Batista’s work chronologically and positions it in the Slovenian as well as the broader cultural space. Andreja Hribernik tackles the artist’s work from the perspective of theoretical starting-points. This is taken up by Ida Hiršenfelder, who analyses Batista’s work primarily in light of the development of contemporary technologies and DIY principles. Rounding out the book, Luka Zagoričnik’s text describes the artist’s works from the perspective of sound.< Less
An Interview With Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša By Alessandro Ludovico
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Artist and media critic Alessandro Ludovico interviews the three artists named Janez Janša. It’s no coincidence that they have the same name and not by chance that they share it with the... More > former Slovenian Prime minister: they deliberately and officially changed the names they’d had from birth to Janez Janša. They also joined the right-wing SDS party led by their homonymous counterpart. After that they experienced a “visible disappearance” from having canceled their previous names but simultaneously having gained huge visibility thanks to their radical gesture. Changing your name is similar to dying: it affects more people other than just you. But name-changing also raises ontological questions about identity, referentiality and, finally, about the status of a work of art. With their bureaucratic performance, the three Janez Janšas have invented two new types of readymade: the personal name, and personal identification documents. Neither of them can be sold or reproduced.< Less
The Woman With the Wolf By Mojca Kumerdej
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This tale by Slovenian writer and philosopher Mojca Kumerdej tells of Moo, a woman who lives in a prehistoric age when the passing of time is marked by “bigmoons”, when animals are both... More > sacred and hunted, both enemies and allies, and when the only medicine available are herbs provided by a shaman. Moo, who knows how to listen to the voice of nature, has been chosen to be the new shaman of her clan in a world at the dawn of civilization, where incest is condemned and wisdom is passed by word of mouth from generation to generation. In other words, Moo lives at the start of the geological era known as the “Anthropocene”, characterized by the changes imprinted on the earth by human beings. Kumerdej’s tale may thus be read as a kind of prequel to the artistic research of Maja Smrekar, whose projects foresee apocalyptic scenarios generated by humanity’s impact on nature.< Less

Janez Janša and Beyond By Mladen Dolar et al.
eBook (PDF): $0.00
In the summer of 2007 three artists from Slovenia legally changed their names to “Janez Janša,” the name of the right-wing Prime Minister at that time. Since then, the artists have... More > presented their works as performances, exhibitions and a film documentary, and have continued with their investigation of “What’s in a name?” Starting from this famous Shakespearian question, four eminent European philosophers – Austrian Robert Pfaller and Slovenians Mladen Dolar, Jela Krečič and Slavoj Žižek – confront the implications of the Janšas’ name change and its consequences in four essays. Ten years of artistic and real life activity, here illustrated by a photographic insert, presents an opportunity for them to discuss the symbolic power of the name, the ways it affects the subject and subjectivity, and how playing with names can lead to a radical critique of our late capitalist civilization.< Less
