The Space within the Space: Scenography in Slovenia until 1991 is the first overall exhibition to present…
In celebration of the Festival’s 50th anniversary, the Slovenian Theatre Institute, the National Liberation Museum, the Slovene National Theatre Maribor and the Maribor Theatre Festival have prepared in cooperation with Slovenian theatres, the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television and Celje Historical Archives (and for the virtual e-xhibition also the Novi Zato. Institute and RTV Slovenia – Radio Slovenia) the exhibition and the catalogue Borštnik Bound!. In them, we present the beginning, the development and the atmosphere of the Festival, while simultaneously trying to catch the Zeitgeist by drawing parallels between the Festival events and the life of Maribor.
On the other hand, we’re also interested in the Festival from the aspect of the history of the Slovenian theatre – emphasising the best performances and paying special attention to the winners of the Borštnik Ring Award, the most important Slovenian award for achievements in acting. This part of the exhibition is also accessible in its virtual form at the websites of sigledal.org.
