EXHIBITION | 20th Century. Continuities and Ruptures

A selection of works from the national collection of Moderna galerija.
The 20th Century. Continuities and Ruptures exhibition breaks with traditional linearity by introducing the topics of the 20th century avant-gardes and of the art of the Partisan resistance, bringing them into the national history of art on an equal footing with more familiar trends and, as a consequence, casting new light on the latter.

EXHIBITION | The Lives of Monuments

17 June 2017 — 18 February 2018
The documentary exhibition about monuments related to World War II and erected in Slovenia at the time of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was developed at the seminar “Art for Community Use” at the Department of Art History of the University of Ljubljana, in cooperation with the Moderna galerija. The title of the seminar should be indicative – it should guide students towards the art placed in public space, intended for the broader public and common use, and created in complex co-authorship.

EXHIBITION | Janez Janša®

18 October 2017 — 18 February 2018
In 2007, three Slovenian artists joined the conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and officially changed their names to that of the leader of the party, the Prime Minister of Slovenia at the time, Janez Janša. While they renamed themselves for personal reasons, the boundaries between their lives and their art began to blur in numerous and unforeseen ways.

DRAUGHT | Nina Slejko Blom & Conny Blom: The Green Drawings

30 November 2017 — 08 February 2018
The Green Drawings is a project that uses the logic of free market capitalism to limit the total amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere. From a cynical perspective, the project uses the same neoliberal logic that controls carbon dioxide emissions, to enable art consumers to buy themselves a guilt-free conscience.

HEGEL’S BEGRIFF | Bara Kolenc, Mirt Komel, Atej Tutta

11 January 2018 — 28 January 2018
Hegel’s Begriff is an installation that questions the possibility of a multisensory (visible-tactile-aural) and at the same time intellectual experience of Hegel’s concept of Begriff. Hegel’s Begriff refers both to an abstract concept and a quite concrete grip; the meaning of Begriff includes a duality that traverses conceptuality as such: on the one hand, there is the tendency towards mental abstraction and, on the other, the tendency towards sensuous concretisation.
