Despre muzeu

You are about to enter the Museum of African Art in Belgrade – the only specialised institution of its kind in Southeast Europe. The Museum is also unique because it is one of the few Museums in the whole of Europe entirely dedicated to the arts and cultures of Africa.

The Museum of African Art was founded in 1977, in light of the non-aligned politics of the now no longer existing Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The primary collection consisted predominantly of art and crafts objects from West Africa, collected by the museum’s founders Zdravko and Veda Pečar. To cite Živorad Kovačević, at the time, the Mayor of Belgrade, academic and social activist: “This Museum will become a symbol of a time in which the Non-Aligned Movement created a new spirit in the political relations between nations and a new relationship towards valuing the artistic achievements of the creativity of different peoples.”

Without ignoring its historical roots, the Museum of African Art continues to work on the promotion of the cultures, traditional and contemporary artistic contributions coming from the traditional African art. Through its work the Museum aims at becoming a regional centre for the dissemination of knowledge on Africa and its many peoples, without repeating the injustices and discriminatory narratives of Europe’s colonial past.
