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.

MGLC's contribution to This Happy Day of Culture
The first act of the exhibition: the setting up of Invader's sculpture Point of Invasion on the pedestal in front of Tivoli Mansion!
The enigmatic artist Invader surprises us again with his installation in the public space. This time, he speaks to the strollers of Tivoli Park, who are greeted by a new piece on the eminent pedestal, produced especially for the Ljubljana exhibition.
We look forward to the opening of the exhibition as soon as the situation permits. Until then, stay with us on the MGLC social networks!"
