>PlatfromaSCCA, the magazine of the SCCA, Center for Contemporary
>Arts-Ljubljana, is focused on the themes that contribute considerably to the
>understanding of the contemporary art practice and its context. The magazine
>was predominantly created as a platform for the texts written within the
>frame of the research project Manifesta in Our Backyard. The project (to
>which both previous issues - June 2000, December 2000 - were dedicated) was
>aimed at researching the operations of the contemporary art system on the
>example of the Manifesta 3 (European Biennial of Contemporary Art) that took
>place in Ljubljana in 2000. Although the research project is finished, we
>continue with publishing the magazine PlatformaSCCA. The decision for that
>was based on the estimation that critical and argumented reflection on
>questions concerning contemporary art and culture is not present enough in
>Apart from providing the information on the center's activities, we publish
>original texts and translations from the fields of art theory, critical
>theory and art criticism.
