With the first comprehensive exhibition project Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature, MGLC Švicarija has outlined the content guidelines that connect art and culture with current social questions, ecology, environmental issues and the community of people in solidarity. We are becoming a model of an inclusive and multidisciplinary institution that also intervenes in the public space and the environment of Tivoli Park. Our engagement is socially critical, capable of reflection on the phenomena of the present time as well as self-reflection on our own actions.

Lea Culetto: On the Rag

1. 6.–31. 7. 2022
MGLC Švicarija

After the first year of living and working in the studio for young artists at MGLC Švicarija, Lea Culetto presents her works in which she exposes taboos and ideas about the female body and the social validation and stigmatisation associated with it.The project On teh Rag consists of simple white T-shirts with prints of the artist's menstrual stain on the back. The message is also more direct, decoded, revealed – the intimate act of menstruation passes into the public space and discourse with the imprint of menstrual blood on custom-made T-shirts.
