Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (MSUM)

The Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (MSUM) displays selected works of contemporary art from the Arteast 2000+ international collection and the MG+MSUM national collection.

The Arteast 2000+ international collection is conceived as a dialogue between works by key Western and Eastern European avant-garde artists, including a number of important artists from Eastern Europe who have for a long time been unknown or overlooked.

The museum has an extensive library containing 66,000 books, exhibition catalogues, and professional journals and newspapers on the subject of contemporary art.
