24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts
10 June–16 September 2005
The 24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts was marked by certain changes, with emphasis placed on the substance of the graphic arts in the context of newly emerging global art and the new internal organizational structure.
The 24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts comprised four exhibition segments
The exhibition was set in the premises of the Museum of Modern Art and the Jakopič Gallery. The curator Breda Škrjanec based her selection on the questions of how the original nature of print, or the multiplication of image and message, is reflected in mass-circulation goods, and what the common points are between art and ruling ideologies.
