Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina

The Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina (MOCAV) maintains a museological-research approach to the preservation, exhibition and presentation of works of contemporary art of the second half of the 20th and the 21st century, linking the local with the international art scene.

Art collections of paintings, sculptures, objects and installations, prints and drawings, conceptual art, film, video and photography, intermedia and digital works, architecture, urban planning and design from the late 20th and early 21st century in Vojvodina, Serbia, as well as the works of foreign artists and art groups, can all be found in the Museum’s collection. In addition to this, the Museum collects, systematizes and preserves a rich library and documentary-archival material on all the protagonists and phenomena relevant for the history of art in Vojvodina.

The MOCAV aims towards a systematic study and revaluation of the history of art of the late 20th and the 21st century in Vojvodina, Serbia and the region, through numerous study, problem-solving, retrospective and monograph projects which promote important historical artistic phenomena and personalities through new approaches and methods, while simultaneously continuing work on educating the public. The task of the Museum is to signal insufficiently established approaches, marginal or alternative courses of art history, at the same time encouraging contemporary production and practices by engaging their protagonists through thematic and solo exhibitions, actions, spoken word programmes, workshops, film screenings, music events etc. intended for the professional and general public. The MOCAV also establishes contacts and cooperates with many institutions in Serbia, the region of the former Yugoslavia, and the wider international art scene.

The MOCAV is an active part of its environment and the contemporary socio-cultural community, providing guidance and encouraging the development of current artistic practices. It focuses on the research, curating, producing and promotion of artistic works and phenomena present primarily within the local art scene, as well as the regional and international one, with the aim of their validation and mutual networking.

Today, museums of contemporary art are communication centers which serve as hubs for the exchange of content and information, establishment of collaborative networks and building of new models of operation. They are open to numerous experiments and research of contemporary artists and theoreticians who expand the fields of fine and visual arts, architecture and design into the fields of modern science and technology, seeking to actively emphasize the connection between art, its environment and social reality.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina implements the majority of its activities in a building that was designed in 1959 by architect Ivo Vitić for the requirements of the former Museum of Socialist Revolution in Dunavska 37 in Novi Sad.
