Opened in 2008 and located in the underground shopping arcade Podhod Ajdovščina in the Ljubljana centre till the end of 2011, the Kapsula Gallery, along with the P74 Centre and Gallery, is one of two branches of the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute and functions as a project space and shop in the Šiška Cultural Quarter.

Apart from smaller exhibitions Kapsula offers multiples, artists' books, catalogues, and limited editions books of artist represented by the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E.
