The International Centre of Graphic Arts has been engaged in publishing ever since its first exhibition in 1989 and issues a range of publications, catalogues, monographs and pamphlets. The publications accompany the solo, group as well as visiting exhibitions featured in the MGLC programme. Every two years a more extensive catalogue is published on the occasion of the International Biennial of Arts. MGLC stores and cares for, but also sells, all the catalogues from the very first International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1955.

Tadej Vaukman: Heaven is a place on Earth
11. 5.–5. 6. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)
opening event: Thursday, 11 May,
at 5 pm
Tadej Vaukman is a photographer in the right sense of the word. He lives with the camera and for photography. He loves chaos, truth and daily reality. While strolling around town, driving a car or riding a bike, during a concert, in his living room, or when visiting his grandma and grandpa, he always finds time to take pictures of naked reality. He shoots exactly what he sees without any subsequent corrections and unnecessary comments.
