curator: Andreja Hribernik in collaboration with Katarina Hergold Germ

The exhibition Gallery for Peace is thematically based on the collection and the archives of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška (KGLU). The collection of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška (KGLU) is based on the works of artists who participated in the international exhibitions mainly in the years 1967 and 1975. Many of them donated their works to support the idea of establishing the Gallery for Peace, which was conceived as a space advocating the ideas of peace, solidarity, and humanism through art. The four international exhibitions that took place at different intervals present us with an opportunity to look at specific local, national, and even international contexts which they arose from. On closer examination, they even reveal a full range of relationships and connections between some individuals and artists, while also disclosing certain political backgrounds. Through these exhibitions, the first of which took place only two years before the tumultuous year of 1968, we are thus also able to trace a particular spirit of the times.
