2023 +

The Project 2023+ is a product of collaboration between Moderna galerija, Ljubljana and Maska as part of their joint project History as a Workshop. It consists of the exhibition Arteast Collection 2000+23 and the electronic publication of the 200th issue of Maska. The project was initiated by Emil Hrvatin. 

The Arteast Collection 2000+23 will present project proposals by artists whose diverse artistic creativities has been presented by Maska over the past five years and who have been invited to participate in its 200th issue, which will be published in 2023. The artists have prepared proposals for works to be realized in 2023 and then included in Moderna galerija's collections. The participants have also selected individual works from the Arteast 2000+ collection to be exhibited together with their proposals. <br/>

The objective of the Arteast Collection 2000+23 exhibition is to develop the idea of the collection that originated at a given historical moment, and to present in a novel and distinct way a proposal for its future acquisitions. With this exhibition, the Arteast 2000+ collection departs from standard museum collections focused on the past, as it deliberately reaches into the future. 


The Arteast Collection 2000+23 will be the fourth show in a series entitled Arteast Exhibitions, staged by the Moderna galerija. The first in the series was Form-Specific in 2003; the second, 7 Sins: Ljubljana-Moscow, staged in 2004; and the third, Interrupted Histories in 2006. The exhibition series complements the Arteast 2000+ Collection, chiefly by exploring the topical problematics in the political / geographical field covered by the collection, and by formulating proposals for the future life and growth of the collection.

www.maska2023+.org will publish proposals of artists, about whom Maska has written during the last five years, for projects which are to be realized in the year 2023. The web page will note the development of the projects and contextualize issues relating to planning and projections into the future.
