LJUBLJANA.- The exhibition presents print portfolios from four biennials (Hamburg 1985, Sydney 1990, Istanbul 1995, and Cetinje 2005) containing more than eighty graphic works by sixty well-known and established artists from all over the world; thus it mirrors the development of art in the past twenty years. These print portfolios represent a unique artistic and art-historical achievement, for they show the development of printmaking techniques and their involvement in the context of contemporary art. They present artists from different generations and different geographical settings; in this way they tear down borders and encourage further communication and creative possibilities which is also what reproduced, multiplied, and distributed art generally does.
