The Secret Life of Švicarija, the launch of the publication
The Cankarian Wedge by artist Ištvan Išt Huzjan, exhibition (on view till 23 October)

You are cordially invited to attend the launch of the publication The Secret Life of Švicarija, the third in the Art in Tivoli Park series, at MGLC Švicarija on Thursday, 6 October 2022 at 6 pm. Edited and written by Yasmín Martín Vodopivec and Vesna Česen Rošker, the publication takes the reader through the history of the Ljubljana City Park gardens and the former entertainment scene to the edge of the forest below Rožnik, where the renovated Švicarija stands. The creative and residential centre that was once a hotel now hides many stories of former hotel guests, artists and residents. One of them is "the mystery of Cankar's room". During the preparation of the publication, it was the writer who inspired the artist Ištvan Išt Huzjan to create the artistic intervention The Cankarian Wedge, the background of which is presented by the exhibition accompanying the presentation of the publication.
