To collect works of art and update out permanent museum collection is one of the central tasks of the Musum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška. The collection is based on a strategy related to our programme guidelines, which follow these basic directions: the first one is to collect works of art that engage with socially critical topics in current times. This is a continuation of the basic collection orientation that was shaped in the context of international exhibitions in the past century. The second direction is to collect works by artists from the region of Carinthia, as well as to continue to enrich the Homage to Tisnikar section. The collection also includes some works that do not belong to any of these directions, but have nevertheless become a part of it in specific circumstances.
The selected works at the exhibition were included in the collection in the past 12 years, either as purchases or as donations. Their main content emphases and the dialogues between the works express both the Museum’s international orientation and its regional character.
