Global photographic exhibition “I Feel Slovenia. I Feel Culture.”

The European journey of a new photographic exhibition, “I Feel Slovenia. I Feel Culture.”, which draws on the cultural heritage of Slovenia, starts this year. A selection of 38 photographs by well-known Slovenian photographers, chosen by the Slovenian Government Communication Office and the Ministry of Culture, presents the cultural diversity of the country, using culture in the broadest sense of the word as the foundation of national identity. The exhibition will be on display in several European cities and is currently in Prague until 20th July.

Global photographic exhibition “I Feel Slovenia. I Feel Culture.”

Slovenia is a country with a rich cultural heritage, which is both inspiring and full of surprises. It was here that the oldest wheel and axle in the world were found. Slovenia is home to the largest stone bridge in the world, the Solkan Bridge. Ljubljana is one of a network of twenty Secessionist or Art Nouveau cities around the world, and Jože Plečnik gave our capital the architectural spirit of eternity. The mercury mine in Idrija, which is today a museum, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, while the Škofja Loka passion play is on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List; still more local treasures could be named.

The exhibition “I Feel Slovenia. I Feel Culture.” uses photographs and texts that supplement the images to enable visitors to become more familiar with Slovenia’s cultural heritage, and to even feel it. The photographs touch on various themes, which are portrayed in a number of innovative ways. The motifs express the foundations of our identity, cultural landscape, the spiritual dimensions of our lives, the elemental culture of living, Slovenian symbolism, the land as a space for world history, living and lively museums, technical heritage, and festivals and music, all of which serve as a cornerstone of the nation’s identity“, it says in the exhibition’s description.
