This year’s Summer School, organized by Moderna galerija, Ljubljana for the second year in a row, will continue to draw on the topics related to the legacy of Eastern European avant-gardes. A particular emphasis will be placed on the major changes caused by the collapse of socialism, the end of the Cold War and the restoration of capitalism in the late 1980s to the early 1990s.
In July and August, Moderna galerija and the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova are open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays. Every Thursday between 6 and 8 p.m. there will be free guided tours and other events.
By using existing archive material and documents the aim of the exhibition is to actualise the work of the Art & Language group and to point at the rich outcome of these strong positions in conceptual art.
The purpose of education programmes is to broaden the narrative created by our exhibitions and the works from our collections. The programmes promote the development of critical thought in conjunction with modern and contemporary art, society and self-reflection of museum as an institution.
