The International Arteast 2000+ Collection Celebrates 20 Years!

Arteast 2000+ is the first ever museum collection conceived and assembled with a view to giving prominence to East European postwar avant-gardes.

On every summer Thursday in July and August, the Museum of Modern Art plus Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova will be open for public till 8 p.m. You are cordially invited to join us in our summer special from 6 to 8 p.m.
