It was with this poster by Ivan Picelj of 1980 that the series with which the Museum Documentation Centre was involved in the celebration of International Museum Day began. The design of this poster meant for the artist the task of presenting museums as complex institutions with heterogeneous contents. The author built the structure of the poster by creating on the surface a grid of 12 rectangular fields in which he placed various items of museum objects (in one of them however there is textual information). They represent the objects that museums collect, safeguard, study and exhibit, as well as their collections, i.e., areas of museum specialisations (art, zoology, engineering, history, applied arts…).

The topicality of the poster is in the actual manner of its design – the author put in a breath of the past, expressed in the old-fashioned drawings, combined with the geometrical expression characteristic of his personal style.
