Junij in June. Selection from the International Collection Junij
Photon Gallery im Slowenischen Kulturzentrum Korotan

"Grupa Junij" was established in 1969 by a group of young artists in order to bring together similar creative impulses. The significance of the group therefore surpassed the range of a homogeneous art group that adopted principles that followed the example of the successors of the historical avant-garde, and created creating a constructive synthesis of different styles and trends. The main idea embraced by the group was the autonomy of art as such, freed of any political, academic, and aesthetic demands for pure styles and genres.

At a time when modernist painting and sculpture prevailed, the members resorted to reproducible media, particularly the innovative use of photography, although there was a broad range of different forms of expression and media. Because of their diversity, the creative practices of the group cannot be generalizsed, however though the common characteristics of a broad range ofseveral different artists gathered in "Grupa Junij" is connected withare figuralism, narrative art, and thea direct expression articulation of a message. The group was highly sensitive to the socio-political events developments of that the time. Their works were steeped in the spirit of the 1970s and early 1980s, as well as in topics such as ecology, global demography, and the related side effects of accelerated urbanizsation, alienation, militancy, repression by state institutions, and growing consumerism. The exhibition therefore focuses on the use of photography, which is probably the most distinguishing segment of the group's legacy.
