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.

DRAUGHT | Jaka Babnik | Time Leveling

20 October 2020 — 28 March 2021
At the focus of Jaka Babnik’s work is the relation between a photograph, its subject, and the latter’s context – rather than the physical appearance of the subject, the photographer is interested in its significance and symbolic value. Adopting topographic, anthropological and exploratory approaches and diverse photographic practices, Babnik deals with ignored or glossed-over historical issues and events; in this, he often collaborates with public institutions.

EXHIBITION | Autography, Uncanniness, Rebellion: the Photography of Božidar Dolenc

24 February 2021 — 06 June 2021
This first large-scale and comprehensive posthumous exhibition of the work of Božidar Dolenc, one of the most prominent and acclaimed photographers of the second half of the 20th century in Slovenia, is conceived around his legacy, acquired in 2016. A free, nonconformist spirit, Dolenc was drawn to street scenes, formulating a recognizable poetic of almost painful veracity and semantic bitterness, as well as to the visual aesthetic of the alternative culture events of the late 1970s, whose main photographic witness he is now considered to be.
