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.
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.
Moderna galerija houses the national collection of 20th century Slovene art (paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings as well as photography, video and electronic media collections) and a collection of works from the former Yugoslavia. Collections overview is available on this link zbirke.mg-...
The systematic and continuous work of the department that focuses on the archives and press clipping collection of Slovenian visual artists and exhibition grounds includes the Raz_Ume computer database that was created in 1989 and compiles the events in the field of visual arts of the 20th and 21st centuries in Slovenia.
