We are closing the Opium Clippers exhibition with these three ceremonies. These are also the final events of my October/November Opium Clippers tour. From 6 October on, we traveled to Treviso, Vienna, London, Barcelona, Zagreb, Podgorica and Cetinje; and had, meanwhile, launched the Opium Clippers book at the Fotografija gallery in Ljubljana, and at Pločnik in Zagreb, won two awards, and opened an exhibition in Nova Gorica. I thank everyone who hosted me with all my heart. And above all, Rostfrei Publishing, that made the Opium Clippers book a reality. See you next year!
The book ‘Opium Clippers’ received an award for the Best Designed Book 2018 in the section “book as an object”at Slovenian Book Fair at Cankarjev Dom, Ljubljana. Big thanks also to all involved with the preparation and execution of ‘Opium Clippers‘: Jaka Babnik, Ana Čavić, Miha Colner, Tevž Logar, Tomaž Šantl and Galerija Fotografija.

We are residents of Layer House in Kranj this week as part of the 48th week of Slovenian Drama
The exhibition Beli-(k)rog /*White Circle* opens on March 26 at 7 pm followed by a magmalaska performance.
Magmalaska stages poetry. It finds refuge in a mysterious house where it dresses the walls with visuals. Throughout the spaces in the house between the Layer House and the Škrlovec Tower it creates a visual-sound installation that researches a spectator’s experience in perceiving poetry. In the programme of the 48th Week of Slovenian Drama, magmalaska calls for a greater presence of poetry in the performing arts by performing the poetic.
Magmalaska are visual artist Neja Tomšič and musician Katja Šulc who are preparing this project as a part of the artistic residency programme at the Layer House.
You are kindly invited to this unique adventure!
We launched the app at the Republic Square on 21 February, and you can visit it by downloading the McKledin Fountain app. In this augmented reality app, viewers hold up a tablet or smart-phone like a protest sign and reveal a full-scale, 3D architecturally correct simulation of the original fountain. When viewers tap on a protest sign they may wander architect Thomas Todd’s stunning 18 animated waterfalls, including the infamous double waterfall. Sprinkled throughout are ‘memory artifacts’, such as koi, skates and pennies that trigger the Baltimore heroes who reminisce on protests; ladies trans picnics; anime costume events; being arrested; kids swimming; a marriage proposal, all told by rappers, activists, a former mayor, teachers, a hula hooper, architect and lawyer, who are among the featured heroes who remember McKeldin Fountain.
The Nonument01: McKeldin Fountain exhibition at the City Museum is open until Wednesday, 28 February,
but you can still visit the memorial at the Republic Square.

We are launching the temporary residency of the demolished McKeldin Fountain as part of the Nonument! Mapping and Archiving Public Spaces at the City Museum in Ljubljana.
The McKeldin Fountain in the centre of Baltimore was the backdrop for the first international art intervention by the NONUMENT Group. The Fountain, which more closely resembled a park, was designated by the city as an area promoting freedom of speech. Numerous demonstrations and rallies took place there, including ones by movements such as Occupy Baltimore and Black Lives Matter, after the death of Freddie Gray.
The fountain is also one of the rare few examples of architectural brutalism in the USA. Its original name was The Waterfall, since one of its primary architectural elements was water. It was designed to connect the Port with the city centre, which is burdened by heavy traffic. The McKeldin Fountain was demolished between November 2016 and January 2017.
The NONUMENT Group documented the citizens’ testimonies and created the NONUMENT01:: The McKeldin Fountain AR app, a virtual memorial to the demolished fountain.
The exhibition will present the story of the McKeldin fountain, and the participants of the symposium will have the opportunity to try out the app before its official release!
Nonument 01 is an international project created by artists Lisa Moren, Jaimes Mayhew, Neja Tomšič, Martin Bricelj Baraga and collaborators.
