Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (+MSUM) wasopened in late November 2011, and Moderna galerija (MG+MSUM) was at last able to reorganise its work in two large content units: Moderna galerija (MG+, museum of modern art), which has remained in the building at Cankarjeva ulica 15, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (+MSUM) located in the former military barracks complex at Metelkova Street at Maistrova ulica 3.


The difference between Moderna galerija (MG+) and +MSUM is based on the historical development of Moderna galerija, its collections, exhibition policies and the cultural-political contexts on the one hand, and, on the other, on the need to re-evaluate modernism and articulate contemporaneity as something that essentially differs from both Modernism and Postmodernism and describes a particular condition of art, its institutions, and social circumstances.
