MGLC has the largest Slovene collection of fine art prints and original publications produced after the Second World War. It is the only public collection of modernist prints in Slovenia, containing more than 10,000 pieces.
The majority of the collection is represented by the donations of the artists that have exhibited at the International Biennials of Graphic Arts. Among them are members of the École de Paris, representatives of the COBRA avant-garde movement, artists of Eastern Europe and other internationally renowned artists. The collection also contains the complete or partial print oeuvres of Vladimir Makuc, Janez Bernik, Danilo Jejčič, Bogdan Borčić, Jože Ciuha, Lojze Spacal, Andrej Jemec, Tinca Stegovec, as well as others.
An important part is represented by the collection of art publications, which accounts for about 4,000 pieces – artists’ books, book works, art journals and magazines, newspaper projects, posters and invites, photographic publications, postcards, stamps, stickers, prints, photocopies, sound art CDs, as well as accompanying literature. The collection was formed in 2001 when the Institut Français loaned 378 works by the avant-gardes artists of the 1960s and 1970s.
MGLC also holds in its collection 425 units from the museum in progress collection of original newspaper projects published in Der Standard newspaper between 1990 and 2002.

Visit the Invader mosaics in Grad Tivoli
Invader is an artist, an individual, a movement, an app, a game and a lifestyle. He is a street art phenomenon and has become a global art star.
You have probably noticed his mosaics around the city of Ljubljana, and some of them are also on the premises of MGLC Grad Tivoli, which are not open to the public. You can see them from Tuesday to Sunday at 2 pm or by appointment (write to us at email@example.com).
