The Print Studios

The MGLC Print Studios are organized as a production centre, offering artists the opportunity to print in a variety of printmaking techniques. They are able to make their prints themselves or can be assisted by the masters of the craft.

In their early years, the Print Studios’ primary job was the preservation and protection of cultural heritage. During this period the reprints of works by Janez Bernik, Andrej Jemec, Veno Pilon, Riko Debenjak, Bogdan Borčić, Karel Zelenko and Marijan Tršar were produced. Later, the production in the Print Studios focused on using certain classic printmaking techniques like intaglio printing, lithography and silkscreen. But the Studios were always conceived to function as a research laboratory, where local and foreign artists can explore their visual ideas as well as further their knowledge and skills.

As a production centre, MGLC offers various ways of participation. For the production of original art prints, the board of experts selects projects every year to be financed and produced in the MGLC Print Studios. Artists may apply personally by the end of the calendar year, however, MGLC may put out a call for submissions if required, or alternately make a direct invitation to a certain artist to engage in the production of a project. 

In the case of co-productions, MGLC takes care of technical and spatial requirements, and the projects are selected on the basis of artists’ proposals. In both cases, production or co-production, MGLC receives two copies of the graphic print for its permanent collection. The MGLC Print Studios are also available to hire.

After the first year of living and working in the studio for young artists at MGLC Švicarija, Lea Culetto presents her works in which she exposes taboos and ideas about the female body and the social validation and stigmatisation associated with it.The project On teh Rag consists of simple white T-shirts with prints of the artist's menstrual stain on the back. The message is also more direct, decoded, revealed – the intimate act of menstruation passes into the public space and discourse with the imprint of menstrual blood on custom-made T-shirts.
