Along with such international artists as Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Nancy Spero, Mangelos, Ivan Picelj, Dóra Maurer, Malle Leis, Osip Zadkin, Görgy Galántai and others, the collection includes complete or partial oeuvres of Lojze Spacal, Vladimir Makuc, Danilo Jejčič, Janez Bernik, Tinca Stegovec, the Slovenia's finest printmakers.


Besides its main collection, the museum has a Collection of Prints and Original Printed Ephemera established in 2000, consisting of posters, fanzines and other items, including all artistic newspaper projects of the Vienna museum "in progress" published in Der Standard daily from 1990 to 2002 and all issues of the hybrid Point d'Ironie newspaper.

  • Both the main display at the centre and those at the other linked galleries elsewhere in Ljubljana are of a poor to abysmal standard. Really disappointed. Save time and money and do something else.  more »
  • This place is up there on global graphic design scape and needs to be more visible internationally. This is par excellence but I see innocence in the game here. Quite endearing actually!  more »
