The Study Room

The Study Room was opened due to increasing public interest and as an addition to study. It is intended for in-depth research of art publications, although it can also house exhibitions.

The visitor to the Study Room can browse through the artists’ books by authors included in the collection, since in addition to prints, the MGLC collection comprises also publications of various genres, whose common denominator is reproduction technique, from artists’ books, art journals, culture magazines, to posters, sound art CDs and theoretical literature. The MGLC collection therefore contains more than 4,000 pieces. 

Available to flick through are Viks art and culture magazines, most issues of the Point d'Ironie hybrid periodical, Gorgona, SMS, 0 TO 9 and Pist Prota. Housed in the collection are also posters and notices of the FV group (donated by Neven Korda), the archive of The Scarecrow Statelet (donated by Milena Kosec), an extensive archive on the events on the Zagreb art scene from the 1970s up till the 1990s, the complete archive of Bernard Villers’ self-published Éditions du Remorquer, as well as the collection of original newspaper projects museum in progress from Der Standard newspaper.

The materials from the collection can be viewed by prior arrangement.
