About the Collection

Today, the collection of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška is made up of roughly 3000 works. The collection is comprised of works by many foreign and domestic artists and of special larger groups of collections, such as the collection of works by Jože Tisnikar, which is supplemented by the collection Homage to Tisnikar – Homage combines works by Slovenian and foreign artists dealing with subject matter similar to that Tisnikar developed – and collections of works by Bogdan Borčić, Valentin Oman, Štefan Planinc and Pino Poggi. The Museum also maintains the special collection that began during the exhibitions under the auspices of the United Nations between 1966 and 1985, which is comprised of international works of art that have a particularly contemporary and engaged position, such as those dealing with war, migration, social inequality and similar. Special attention is devoted to contemporary artistic production, particularly of those artists from the region as well as artists from across Slovenia.

The online presentation of the collection is divided into categories according to artistic genres. Along with the individual genres, specific segments and artists whose ranges of works are the largest or have a special value for the collection are foregrounded as well. The website presents only a selection of artists and art works.
