Švicarija–Ljubljana’s “nest of art”

On the European Cultural Heritage Days 2017, we invite you to join us in Tivoli Park at the Švicarija Creative Centre for a lecture on the history of this historic building and guided tour of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion.

Saturday, 30 September, 11.00–13.00, Švicarija Creative Centre, admission free

The history of the so-called Švicarija will be presented by Tatjana Adamič and Aleksandra Renčelj Škedelj, conservators of the Ljubljana Unit of the Slovenian Cultural Heritage Protection Institute (ZVKDS), which also actively participated in the renovation of the building.

The lecture will be followed by a guided tour of the main exhibition of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion in the company of art historian Gregor Dražil

The Little Biennial Dwarf Children's Corner is open during the guided tour. We provide creative art animation combined with day care, and are counting the days to the start of school. Children and accompanying adults are invited to join us free of charge.

The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion

Trapped in perception?
Public guided tour of the main exhibition of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion, conducted by Hana Ostan Ožbolt
Tuesday, 26 September, at 5 pm, guided tour starts at MGLC

In the search for an answer to the question of how art can be approached differently, this year's 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts introduced certain innovations: the exhibition without the central figure of the curator, the process of selecting the participating artists was taken over by the artists themselves, and instead of a concept, the artists were confronted with the poem by Jure Detela Birth as Criterion, which served as a way of stimulating a response from the artists.

Hana Ostan Ožbolt will present those art projects in the guided tour that she thinks particularly emphasize the experimental structure of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts.

Hana Ostan Ožbolt graduated in Comparative Literature and German Studies, and is currently completing her master's degree in the Department of Art History. She was part of the 15th generation of the School for Curators and Critics of Contemporary Art. She now writes occasionally and works within the field of contemporary art between Ljubljana and Berlin.

The Little Biennial Dwarf Children's Corner is open during the guided tour. We provide creative art animation combined with day care, and are counting the days to the start of school. Children and accompanying adults are invited to join us free of charge.
