KOLEKTIVA is a group of three contemporary visual artists based in Ljubljana, Slovenia:
Vesna Bukovec, Lada Cerar and Metka Zupanič.
We started to work together as informal group in 2002. In 2008 we decided to form a group KOLEKTIVA in order to make a bigger division between our individual and our collective work.
