The Space within the Space / educational program accompanying the exhibition
a program for primary and secondary schools
UGM Studio, Trg Leona Štuklja 2
24 October – 9 November 2019

UGM Studio in cooperation with Festival Borštnikovo srečanje is hosting the exhibition Space in the Space, the first transparent exhibition, which depicts the Slovenian scenography historically, stylistically, artistically and theatrically. With the help of preserved models, scenic drafts in various art techniques, sketches, plans and photographs of the performance, the stage design will be presented as a science, as well as will be the work of contemporary and older stage designers and the development of the spaces of the game on Slovenian stages.
Since the majority of the stage designers of the older generation are also important Slovene artists, the exhibition will emphasize the theatrical part of their life work - which has been poorly presented so far (for example, Ivan Vavpotič, Avgust Černigoj, Marija Pregla, Gabrijela Stupica, Vala Bratina, Maks Kavčič, Jožeta Polajnka, Toše Primožič etc.) until the projects in 1991 (Vadim Fiškina, Miran Mohar, Marko Japlja). The exhibition brings a new look at the history of fine arts and the history of the theatre on our soil.
The author of the exhibition is mag. Ana Kocjančič. The exhibition was prepared by the Slovenian Theatre Institute (SLOGI) in cooperation with the National Gallery. The producers of the installation in Maribor are UGM and Festival Borštnikniko Srečanje.

Through the guided tour of the exhibition pupils will acquaint themselves with important parts of the domestic cultural heritage in the field of scenography, and will conquer the art concepts related to the designing of scenography and the different ways of expression in the scenography. They will be able to expand their understanding of the exhibition with a practical experience at the creative workshop. We especially recommend the FBS & UGM program - Cultural Day. Linking the activities of two cultural institutions, the Slovene National Theatre Maribor and the Maribor Art Gallery will allow pupils and students a wider understanding and a more experienced perception of theatrical and fine arts.
