Likovne besede Magazine - 03.jpg

The magazine Likovne besede (Art Words) has been published since 1985 by the Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies (ZDSLU). Likovne besede usually comes out twice a year as a double issue and is the main periodic publication in the field of visual art and art theory in Slovenia. It is published in Slovenian with summaries in English. Since 2009 a booklet series Ljubljana Personal, Alternative City Guides has been published as an artistic alternative to the tourist brochures.


Each issue of the magazine focuses on a theme ("Arte-fact?", "Women in Art"; "Microutopias"; "Views on Contemporary Slovene Art"; "Art and Time"; "Dreams", "Psychoanalysis and Art" ...) combined with regular formats such as "Round Table", "Interview, "Contributions to the Slovenian Dictionary of Art Terms", and the "Theoretical Supplement". The magazine features also exclusive notes by the artists (diaries, reflections, artistic pages).

In 2010 the exhibition Likovne besede – 25 years and forth at the Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies (ZDSLU) Gallery presented the selected artworks that were created for the magazine by Mirsad Begić, Milan Erič, Milan Golob, Meta Grgurevič, Milena Kosec, Marko Kovačič, Ivo Mršnik, Alen Ožbolt, Irena Romih, Alenka Sottler, Matej Andraž Vogrinčič and Kamila Volčanšek.
