For years now, the City of Women has been preoccupied with the issue of archiving the rich history of its activities and preserving the contents even after the live events are over. Through our archival activities – the library and digital archives –, we wish to expose the social criticism of the City of Women as the basic principle of our feminist curating and operation in order to use our situated knowledge to intervene in the main streams of Slovenian art system and society.

Special Library for Contemporary Arts and Feminism

In 2019, City of Women opened a library, dedicated to contemporary arts and feminisms. It currently contains around 1500 titles, including books, art catalogues and City of Women archives. Some of the titles are included in the COBISS system. 

The library is located in our offices at Metelkova 6 (2nd floor on the left) in Ljubljana. There, you can borrow titles without charge and (for now) without a membership card. 

We are open from Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm.

The City of Women Library is coordinated by Tea Hvala with the help of volunteers Neža Bandel and Matha Sotelo Bunjevac.
