Nika Autor will represent Slovenia at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Andreja Hribernik, the director of Slovenia’s Koroška Gallery of Fine Arts, will curate the pavilion.
Autor’s multidisciplinary practice addresses effects that various forms of representation in media have on matters of social, political, and economic significance. Through a collective she founded, Newsreel Front (Obzorniška Fronta), Autor creates short films and writes criticism that interrogates the use of newsreels in Slovenia as a form of political cinema to further an ideological agenda. Other interests include research in the realm of “invisibilities/inaudibilities.”
