Memory (W)Hole avails itself of the fundamental support of the Slovene Ministry of Culture, of the Municipality of Ljubljana, of the Ljubljana Italian Institute of Culture, as well as various private sponsors.
Within the event, a rich and variegated panorama of proposals conceived by 19 important curators from a broad European area that ranges from Ukraine (Jerzy Onuch) to Turkey (Beral Madra), from Poland (Anda Rottenberg) to Bulgaria (Iara Bubnova), will transform the Castle of Ljubljana, in occasion of the centennial celebration, into a true “ living sculpture ”. Two are the fundamental nuclei of the event in Ljubljana: the original combination, during the 3rd and 4th of September, of the CONFERENCE of the Central-Eastern European contemporary art curators with the PERFORMANCE SECTION whose title is "The Conference of performances", assigned to Lela B.Njatin (Slovenia), Michal Murin (Slovakia), Balint Szombathy (Hungary), Elzbieta Jablonska (Poland), Slaven Tolj (Croatia), Katrin Essenson (Estonia), Emanuela Marassi and Lorenzo Missoni (Italy). The second nucleus of the event, from the 5th to the 25th of September, is the exhibition MEMORY (W)HOLE, which collects the works of 23 international artists requested to create their projects on the theme of memory as a whole (Whole) and as a liminal space governed by the unconscious (Hole).
