Scope and Content

The collection is thematically focused on socially critical and committed art created between the two world wars. The central part of the collection consists of works of art created during the Second World War: Partisan prints, drawings, paintings, sketches, etc. by camp inmates from mainly Italian, but also German concentration camps, prisoner-of-war camps and the prisons of the occupying forces. In the style of post-war regime-oriented socialist realism, the museum also owns works that were created for public monuments and facilities in government and other public spaces, depicting the national liberation struggle and revolution, the reconstruction and establishment of the state as well as portraits of national heroes and political figures.
