BIO – Biennial of Design Ljubljana @ Tivoli Mansion

The Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts is one of the oldest biennials in the world; it was founded in 1955. Ibrahim Mahama is the artistic director of this year’s 35th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts.

With its activities, it positioned Ljubljana and Slovenian art into a global context, influenced the development of many similar events around the world, and created an active network for the exchange of experience in the field of graphic arts.

The international community recognized the Biennale as a high-quality event, and thanks to it, Slovenian art also established itself abroad, where it is represented in the museums of the world mainly through graphic prints. Since its foundation, it has strengthened and supported the quality of Slovenian art and artists. By regularly presenting the works of artists from different cultural backgrounds and artistic environments, it also influenced local developments. At the same time, it played a significant role in the formation of the Ljubljana School of graphic arts and the works that are included among the highlights of classical printmaking production. The Biennale emerged at a time when printmaking and its reproductive techniques fully resonated with the general state of art and society. It was precisely at this time that Pop Art had already established itself in Great Britain and the United States. Post-war capitalism, consumer society, and the uncertain division of so-called high and low culture had a strong influence on the production of art.

The International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC) is an art, education, residency, and leisure center that enriches the lives of all generations by linking heritage, contemporary art, and nature. Located in Ljubljana, in the heart of Tivoli Park, MGLC is housed in two remarkable historic buildings: Tivoli Mansion since 1986 and Švicarija since 2017.

Salone del Mobile.Milano

The Salone Internazionale del Mobile is a hub of experimentation and cross-pollination, a place for interface and fresh opportunities for reflection on the world of design and planning.

Each year, the Salone del Mobile brings its “good looking” and “well made” products back onto an internationally important stage, whilst also being proof of how the evolution of the trade fair process can be accelerated. The event has always been a testament to an extraordinary curiosity, willingness, and openness to discussion and to a tremendous ability to progress, innovating consolidated formulas. Over the last few difficult years, the Salone has initiated a concrete revision of its exhibition format, geared to continuing to generate value for the entire design community.

This positive and constructive energy has fuelled a major new departure for this edition: a single exhibition level, with the exhibitors from the upper pavilions (8-12, 16-20) moving into the lower ones, thus simplifying, improving and enhancing accessibility and the visitor experience. Other main focuses will be the quality of the proposals and content, the cultural dimension, and the professional enrichment of the event. Furthermore, following a careful analysis of its professional audience, this year Salone has taken not just aesthetic affinity into account when positioning the brands, but also their targets and interlocutors, in order to optimize and expand meetings between visitors and exhibitors.

The hundreds of exhibitors and the thousands of products on show are confirmation of the immense importance of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile as an international platform for creativity and an unmissable forum for industry professionals – averaging more than 370,000 attendees from 188 different countries every year.

BIO – Biennial of Design Ljubljana


BIO – The Biennial of Design in Ljubljana is organized by the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), and is an international platform for new approaches in design. BIO was founded in 1963, making it the first design biennial in Europe. Witnessing the many shifts and changes of the last 56 years, BIO has seen design transition from its birth at the crossroads of industrialization and modernism to a discipline that permeates all layers of life and human endeavor. Today, BIO is structured as a long-term collaborative process, where teams of designers and multidisciplinary agents develop alternatives to established systems. BIO works as a testing ground, where design is employed as a tool to question and improve our daily life, among different and multidisciplinary design approaches that touch systems, production, services, scientific research, humanistic issues, and unexpected conditions for the production of our habitat. The diverse array of topics resonates with both local and global demands, with comprehensive projects aimed at creating resilient structures that develop over time, beyond the duration of the Biennial.
