The invited guests - scientists, architects, artists, curators - will present their theories and projects, all dealing in different ways with particular divergences from regular and dominant systems, i.e. the exploration of various possibilities of establishing alternative systems.

- Jože BarŔi
Architect and artist, Professor of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. He will present several of his artistic projects (House, Toilet) through which he explores the relation between art, its function and everyday life.

- Francesco Bernardelli
Curator and critic; lives and works in Torino. He will present radical architectural collectives, who were active in 60s and 70s in Italy (UFO, Archizoom, Superstudio idr.) and were intertwining design, architecture and everyday life with the goal of a positive social change.

- Andrej Detela
Physicist and inventor. Andrej Detela will present the research he conducts in the field of physics, mainly the research on developing various types of motors for electric vehicles of the next generation and the possibilities of alternative energy resources. He will focus on his ten year long development of a prototype motor for DD (direct drive) electric vehicles, and finally he will establish the basic principles of an electric airplane.

- Oliver Kochta
Artist; lives and works in Helsinki. On the example of Micronations Summit project - which he was co-curating in 2003 in Helsinki - he will present the phenomenon of ?do it yourself? states (from 60s on) and utopistic communities in USA in 19th century.

- Janez Koželj
Architect, Professor at the School of Architecture in Ljubljana where, among other, he conducts courses in Architecture of the City. He will present his research in the domain of degraded urban areas, the reasons for their occurrence and the possibilities for their re-shaping and revitalisation.

- Mateja MedvediÄ?
Architect and critic. She deals predominantly with contemporary, temporary and parasite architecture. She will present some aspects of her M.A. thesis The Ephemeral in Architecture.

- Marko Peljhan
Conceptual artist, director of Projekt Atol Association, co-founder of Ljudmila, Professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara, co-ordinator of MIR (Microgravity Interdisciplinary Research) projects. He will present the project MAKROLAB (1997-2007), a ten-year project of an autonomous communication, research and residential laboratory for transdisciplinary research in the fields of telecommunications, migrations and climat.

- Marko PogaÄ?nik
Academic sculptor who started dealing with energetic-ecological healing of the environment as early as in the 80s. He is also known as the member of the Slovene conceptualist art group OHO. His presentation will focus on the closing chapter of the group's work (1970), when they stepped out of the world/institution of art, moved to the countryside and establish a commune i.e. Å empas Community where they interweaved art and life.

- Marjetica PotrÄ?
Artist, architect and urban anthropologist. She will present the research that derives out of her work on the Caracas Case Project in Caracas, Venezuela, in 2003. Examples: informal architecture, dynamic mapping, colonization and invasions, security and privatisation in a contemporary city, as well as the Dry Toilet project, realised in the settlement of La Vega in Caracas.

- Igor Zabel
Critic and curator, employed as curator in the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana. Igor Zabel will present the collective exhibition Individual Systems, which he curated within the frame of last year?s Venice Biennale. The exhibition questioned the relation between art as an autonomous system and the social context and dealt with positive-utopian and negative-antagonistic aspects of the idea of ordered system as an essential part of Modernism.
