DESCRIPTION The catalogue for the 28th Biennial of Graphic Arts exposes the reproducible nature of the graphic arts. The main exhibition of the 28th Biennial of Graphic Arts responded to certain topical questions for society and art raised by the cult movie trilogy The Matrix. Its aim was to answer questions on whether the medium stays the same even when it incorporates new technologies into its discourse. Does this increase the art audience? What is the social power of those who possess the matrix? Is the possession of the matrix enough to also justify exclusive reproduction rights? Can we create a perfect world, be it real or virtual? The exhibition offered a selection of more than eighty internationally established and emerging artists, whose work extends from traditional and contemporary printmaking to artists’ books as well as interventions in the public space, in the mass media, and on computers. Artistic Director Božidar Zrinski invited other Ljubljana galleries to collaborate, which also resulted in the selection of artists. The Biennial was curated by Božidar Zrinski, Petja Grafenauer, Alenka Gregorič and Gülsen Bal, Jadranka Ljubičič and Tadej Pogačar. The catalogue is dedicated to Dr Zoran Kržišnik.
