The exhibition presents two art projects included in the first issue of the contemporary art magazine ETC. In the first issue, we present artistic practices that focus on the local environment. Janja Kosi's project Serving Suggestion addresses the notions of space, architecture, homeliness, emptiness and consumption. She analyses these through the local manifestations of the global furniture giant Ikea. Szabelski presents AMZN, a multi-layered multimedia project based on a series of photographs of Amazon warehouses. They are accompanied by the story of workers' difficulties collected in union leaflets, stories of solidarity in an era of increasing automation, and insights into the consumer experience.

Razstava predstavlja dva umetniška projekta, vključena v prvo številko revije za sodobno umetnost ETC. V tej predstavljamo umetniške prakse, ki se posvečajo lokalnemu okolju. Janja Kosi v projektu Predlog serviranja naslavlja pojme prostora, arhitekture, domačnosti, izpraznjenosti in potrošnje. Te analizira skozi lokalno pojavnost globalnega pohištvenega giganta Ikea. Szabelski predstavlja večplastni multimedijski projekt AMZN, ki temelji na seriji fotografij Amazonovih skladišč. Spremljajo jih zgodba o težavah delavcev, predstavljena v letakih sindikata, zgodbe solidarnosti v dobi vse večje avtomatizacije in uvid v potrošniško izkušnjo.

Etc. is an annual magazine, dedicated to showcasing current artistic production from the Baltic to the Balkans. Based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, each issue is dedicated to a relevant topic in art and life. Founded to promote emerging artists, its goal is to initiate a dialogue, inspire collaborations and challenge set views.

The international magazine ETC. is designed to bring together artists, curators, writers and publishers who work in the field of contemporary art. As the magazine is focused on a different social/environmental/political issue in each publication, it is designed to be a platform for diverse voices and opinions from all over Europe, contributing to a wider understanding of a certain issue and the recontextualisation of a border-defined narrative. Today more than ever, there is a need to start a dialogue and begin open conversations. By building a network of young critical minds from completely different backgrounds, the magazine aims to do just that.
