Ivan Cankar and Europe

Between Shakespeare and Kafka

An examination of Cankar’s art through an analysis of influences and interpretations, and juxtaposition with contemporary European writers. The visually elaborate architectural and graphic layout, supported by audio-visual media, installation art and diverse visual highlights, offers a vivid account of Cankar’s excellence, his comprehensively exquisite aesthetic and artistic vision.

Ivan Cankar
We all know Ivan Cankar. But do we really? How much do we actually know about his life circumstances? Fortunately, Cankar’s extensive literary output bears permanent traces of how the author lived. A well-chosen selection of the writer’s quotes gives an insight into his life’s journey from Vrhnika, through Ljubljana, Vienna and Trieste to Ljubljana’s Rožnik Hill. Providing the spectators with a virtually first-hand account. 

Exhibition devised by: Dr Blaž Vurnik; Co-devised by: Janez Polajnar, MA; Design: Novi kolektivizem
