Igor Zabel's archive - documents from his office in Ljubljana's Moderna galerija - is, after a considerable effort, neatly arranged, listed and available at Moderna galerija Archives Department.

Since 1971, the department collects, processes and keeps materials on exhibitions in Slovenia and exhibitions of Slovenian artists abroad, art exhibition grounds and other spaces of creation and presentation of visual arts, visual artists of Slovenia in the 20th and 21st centuries, Slovenian authors of art theory and criticism of the 20th and 21st centuries. These represent the largest database from the mentioned fields and may be used by the public for scientific and research, cultural, education and journalistic purposes.

Thanks to Simona Žvanut for her meticulous work and to the department's curators for their support!
