Mission

MGLC is a special but extrovert museum with a clearly emphasised identity, based on the heritage of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and the 20th century art of printing. The museum is also an important producer of graphic and contemporary art. The museum does not merely seek its place within the existing art system, but goes beyond the prevailing Eurocentric direction with its collections and unique graphic arts Biennial. At MGLC we are well aware of the fact that the times in which we will seek the true essence of art will soon be upon us again. Our task is not merely to preserve the heritage for future generations, but to provide the conditions for art to be encountered, enjoyed and even created by the widest possible range of people.

Vision

MGLC will become an accessible, friendly, contemporary and internationally relevant museum of graphic arts of the present and the future, as well as a vibrant cultural and educational centre dedicated to the public in the broadest sense of the word.
