Ana Kocjančič’s book The Space within the Space – Scenography in Slovenia from 17th Century till 1991 is an extensive professional monograph “with the help of which the reader travels through important stations in the history of Slovenian scenography, theater, fine arts and culture in general,” wrote the reviewer dr. Tomaž Toporišič.
The monograph is divided into two books. In the first book, the author deals with the period from its beginnings until the Second World War, and the second book explores the contemporary theater after the Second World War until Slovenian independence in 1991.
“From its first steps after 1918 until 1991, Slovenian scenography experienced a fast and qualitative stylistic evolution and with its contemporary theatrical-stage design projects after World War II entered itself onto the map of European theatre creation.”
The publishing of the book is supported by the Slovenian Book Agency and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
