Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade reopened in October 2017. The museum, founded in 1958, had previously been closed to visitors for 10 years. Renovations that dragged on for years and numerous corruption scandals delayed the completion of the work time and again. At first, the roof was renovated and in the basement rooms of the museum depot, workshops, conservation and restoration studios were renovated. In the final phase of the conversion, the interior was completely redesigned.
Through the glazing of some side walls and the roof, enough daylight enters the exhibition space, which is divided into several levels without internal partitions. Mezzanines, intermediate levels with different ceiling heights and the panoramic view to the outside give the room a very airy, open atmosphere. The newly used modular Mila-wall wall system is a perfect match. The purist aesthetics and the sustainable, flexible application possibilities for the presentation of paintings, sculptures, multimedia and much more create new spaces as required.
After being kept in the National Bank's vault for 10 years, the museum's approximately 8,000 works of art are now open to the public again: in the first week after its opening, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade was open for free admission for seven days and seven nights in one piece.
"We are now leaving ten years behind and looking forward to a better future."
Slobodan Nakarada, Director
The opening exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade was realized with Mila-wall partitions of the 840 series with a height of 2.5 meters.
