•Free admission to all exhibitions.
•A free of charge excursion to Zagreb, where we will view the Print Cabinet of the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, and stroll through the streets of the festively decorated capital, which has been considered as the most beautiful festively decorated city for the past few years now.

Sicoe sometimes also crowns his works with a touch of poetry, the master of which he is himself.

•SOCREA workshop – making original festive greeting cards.

LEALUDVIK: In the waters on Leviathan; I would go poof!
6. 6.–3. 7. 2017
opening event: Tuesday, 6 June,
at 5 pm
In the waters on Leviathan is an alternative version of the project I would go poof! – it only replaces the forest for the sea, and bites harder into occult symbolism. "I would go poof" came the smiling response from Charles Manson to the question posed by the judge about his plans in the event of parole. The assumption of man as a free being is a delusion. We live in fear, endless routine, helplessness. We are trapped in an "open" prison. Freedom is an illusion. Due to all the effort, man's desire for freedom, "parole", exit or at least passage to another state, is becoming all the more common. As a result, most people seek a magic solution—> to disappear without a trace: Poof!
The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion
BIRTH AS CRITERION: DISCURSIVE PROGRAMME
The birth of Birth as Criterion – on the genesis and protocols of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts
Thursday, 6 July, at 18.30, Škuc Gallery, free entrance
Discussion on the basic ideas, rhizomatic structure, process of work, development of the exhibition, as well as all the dilemmas and decisions taken during the organisation of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts at the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME at the ŠKUC Gallery. The exhibition offers a condensed insight into the making of this year's experimental format of the Biennial and, along with the presented works, attempts to awaken thinking and pondering, doubts and concerns, and to provide a different view of the Biennial's main exhibition and its emergence in the light of the central endeavour of this year's Biennial edition: searching for new ways of conceiving exhibitions.
The debate will involve Miklavž Komelj, Yasmín Martín Vodopivec, Vladimir Vidmar and Nevenka Šivavec, the members of the Biennial Committee and the curators of the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME.
The discussion will be moderated by Miha Colner.
