This first large-scale and comprehensive posthumous exhibition of the work of Božidar Dolenc, one of the most prominent and acclaimed photographers of the second half of the 20th century in Slovenia, is conceived around his legacy, acquired in 2016. A free, nonconformist spirit, Dolenc was drawn to street scenes, formulating a recognizable poetic of almost painful veracity and semantic bitterness, as well as to the visual aesthetic of the alternative culture events of the late 1970s, whose main photographic witness he is now considered to be.

At the focus of Jaka Babnik’s work is the relation between a photograph, its subject, and the latter’s context – rather than the physical appearance of the subject, the photographer is interested in its significance and symbolic value. Adopting topographic, anthropological and exploratory approaches and diverse photographic practices, Babnik deals with ignored or glossed-over historical issues and events; in this, he often collaborates with public institutions.
