Membrana is a contemporary photography magazine dedicated to promoting a profound and theoretically grounded understanding of photography. Its aim is to encourage new, bold, and alternative conceptions of photography as well as new and bold approaches to photography in general. The magazine builds upon the long tradition of publishing Slovenian language magazine Fotografija (published since 1997) as well as on long tradition of critical and investigative approach cherished by its editors.
Membrana publishes a wide range of contributions, ranging from interviews to theoretical articles, essays on contemporary photography, columns, regional portfolios, exhibition and book reviews. Positioning itself in the space between scholarly magazines and popular publications, it offers an open forum for critical reflection on the medium, presenting both analytical texts and quality visuals. The magazine is published bi-annually in the summer and winter in English language by Slovene non-profit institute Membrana.
