The Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade is a must for any art lovers visiting Serbia.
The building, situated near the confluence of the Sava and the Danube, displays masterpieces of Yugoslav and Serbian artists created in the 20th and 21st Centuries.
With more than 8,300 works by prominent painters, photographers, sculptors, performers and video artists on display, the Museum’s collection provides a detailed insight into the achievements of post-war art in former Yugoslavia.
We suggest you begin your journey through more than 70 years of art by a tour of the urban modernism section, which documents the first forays of the Yugoslav art world into modern European artistic expression.
From there, head to the exciting performances, land art and body art, bearing witness to the new directions in art in the 1950s and discover how socialism gave birth to the new modernist art. Discover the avant-garde art of zenithism, the Slovenian constructivism and the Belgrade surrealism.
The photography exhibition will transport back to post-World War II Serbia before introducing you to the uninhibited energy of the 1970s subculture - sculptures and exciting performances are guaranteed to interest visitors. The same is true of the politically and socially conscious art of the 1990s, created during the wars in former Yugoslavia.
A visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art will introduce you to original, creative and often experimental works of art, which have gained international recognition and garnered praise for their excellence.
