The museums participating on the project aim at re-evaluating and rethinking their resources: archives, collections and working methods in order to develop their potentials by creating knowledge and connecting the various types of audiences. The traditional roles of the contemporary art museum are changing: its most important activities are no longer merely storage, studying and exhibiting of artworks, but also an active involvement with the museum’s audience. For this reason, the project will develop combination of exhibitions ans educational programs based on participatory approach, intended for both, the audience and the staff.

The didactic exhibition was founded in 1957 upon the initiative of the art critic Josip Depol and the conceptual group Exat 51. It is conceived as a travelling exhibition consisting of 92 panels representing the history of global contemporary and abstract art from the late 19th century to the artistic trends of the 1950s. In Slovenj Gradec, a selection of the panels will be exhibited. Today, the exhibition should be viewed in the light of its topicality at the time of its conception. However, consistent with its purpose, it is set up outside the gallery and museum spaces and thus made accessible to the widest possible audience.
