Speaker: Martin Bricelj

Martin Bricelj Baraga is a visual and media artist and cultural activist. His works, audiovisual performances and several collaborations research the relation between man and machine, social aspects of contemporary pop culture, future monumentalism and political dimensions of our mediated realities.
He is author of interactive works based on creation of new situations in public space, a term he interprets very broadly: comprising anything from actual city spaces to virtual worlds.
In his works he positions time as a key element, as his works are often time-based and processual. He aims to engage a broad audience, even masses in creation of the work. The materialization of the work -the actual object- is often only the trigger which initiates the project, which is then evolving in interaction with its users. His work is marked by a fascination with media and technology combining it with concepts of science fiction- as an author, he defines his language in relation to contemporary everyday life, politics and pop culture. In this sense all his works can be understood as social experiments, which research artistic representation and production in extraordinary contexts as well.
He has exhibited in many galleries and spaces worldwide. He is the director of Spring Festival in Ljubljana (an open air festival of electronic music and visual arts) and started artistic-curatorial initiative MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art, which is the first AiR programme in Ljubljana and a network of foreign artists, curators in the so called ‘East’.
