Mission

MGLC is a special but extrovert museum with a clearly emphasised identity, based on the heritage of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and the 20th century art of printing. The museum is also an important producer of graphic and contemporary art. The museum does not merely seek its place within the existing art system, but goes beyond the prevailing Eurocentric direction with its collections and unique graphic arts Biennial. At MGLC we are well aware of the fact that the times in which we will seek the true essence of art will soon be upon us again. Our task is not merely to preserve the heritage for future generations, but to provide the conditions for art to be encountered, enjoyed and even created by the widest possible range of people.

Vision

MGLC will become an accessible, friendly, contemporary and internationally relevant museum of graphic arts of the present and the future, as well as a vibrant cultural and educational centre dedicated to the public in the broadest sense of the word.

ARCHIVE

WELCOME TO THE BIENNIAL ARCHIVE WEBSITE

bienale.si

The new website of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts has been conceived as an overview of Biennial events from 1955 to the present day. It presents one of the oldest international art events that began with the desire to show a graphic map of the world in Ljubljana. With the introduction of the curatorial approach after 2001, the limitations to a single medium were dispelled and it began to develop into a museum and out-of-museum entity reflecting contemporary art and curatorial practice. The website presents the structural features of each Biennial with lists of artists, prize winners and jurors. The artistic credo of the Biennial is brought closer through the photo galleries and descriptions of the Biennial's main exhibitions, the traditional exhibitions of the prize winners and the accompanying exhibitions. A special section is dedicated to Biennial publications. The Biennial Archive website is conceived as a growing document of a diverse segment of cultural heritage. It is upgraded with the research findings on the history of the Biennial of Graphic Arts as well as topical news to keep you informed about related current events.

The English website is under construction.

ON THE PUBLICATION OF THE BOOK “AM I A MANAGER? YES, I AM.”

“This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Zoran Kržišnik, one of the founders and the longtime leader of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts. As the end of the year approaches, we are pleased to announce the publication "Am I a manager? Yes, I am.", which provides an insight into the international work of this ambitious visionary.

The booklet by the author, MGLC curator, Gregor Dražil, is available in the museum shop in Grad Tivoli and in the online shop.
