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.

It serves as a starting point for further research into Slovenian graphic production and its involvement in the contemporary visual art practices.

In from the Margins - European residency programme - at MGLC

In from the Margins programme is an art residency opportunity for migrant and refugee artists or artists who identify with experience of displacement.

The programme seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for refugee artists and local communities to share and to learn from each other while being supported by the resources and expertise of print studios. 

As part of the project, MGLC has announced six residencies and has selected the following artists for the residencies: Qëndresë Deda, Francisco Tomsich, Maja Živko, Lina Rica, Azad Karim and Azadeh Hashemzadeh.

In April 2022 MGLC was hosting Lina Rica. The artist, who knows the challenges of moving from her own experience, was working on the topic of home. In May, we hosted Maja Živka, who researched the feelings that are projected through different living spaces. In June, Azadeh Hashemzadeh created in our Print studio, whose residency was terminated early and will continue at the end of August. You will be able to see her work in the Print Studio on August 31 between 5 and 7 p.m.
