To provide orientation for the practice of medical workers in the circumstances of crisis medical care, triage principles and crisis care criteria were formed.

24. 12. 2020–26. 2. 2021
Many natural history museums around the globe are facing the dilemma of how to adjust the presentation of their collections in line with new trends. It is not a coincidence that while the public is witnessing a clash between the advocates and opponents of dioramas – with the former finding them as much under threat as animals and ecosystems exhibited, and the latter regarding them as an obsolete propaganda tool used by imperialist forces – Maja Smrekar is seeking to bring the diorama back to life in her project Optical Disturbance.

24. 9. 2020–6. 11. 2020
Certain contemporary artistic approaches and practices, especially those in which echoes of high modernism can be discerned, are sometimes described in terms of transcendental illustrations of “repressed meaning”. Such use of the notion of the unconscious in the field of the visual arts may also be seen as controversial, raising questions of what is concealed and allowing interpretive pirouettes and theories revolving around the sublime and the abstract.

3. 6. 2020–31. 7. 2020
Viktor Bernik’s creative output is endowed with two distinctive features: referencing social reality and the use of various formal solutions. Bernik takes on contemporary society with playfulness and humour, shifting back and forth between the fields of painting and those of drawing, video, graphics as well as spatial installation, intervention and events.

30. 1. 2020–13. 3. 2020
Bojan Fajfrić’s exhibition The Void conveys a specific manner of viewing history by conflating personal memories, collective historical consciousness and the inevitable events, while the use of non-linear timeline in his videos and films often turns them into speculative history.
