LETTER OF SUPPORT to All Working at Metelkova 6

23 October 2020 | 12:00
We at Moderna galerija (MG+MSUM) are shocked and appalled by the demand of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia that the cultural, research, and civil-society organizations that have their offices at Metelkova 6 vacate the premises by the end of January 2021. This demand fails to show any trace of concern for the continued cultural, artistic, and civil-society work of organizations and collectives that have a thirty-year-long tradition and exceptional symbolic significance.
