Museum of Modern Art – 7 years of no art

Yes. It’s another building that is slowly decaying. It was founded in 1958 as the Museum of Modern Art and it was the first Contemporary Art museum in this part of Europe. Closed for the past 7 years (for renovation was needed, but of course, there was never enough money, will or both for the works to be done), The Museum of Contemporary art for me is not a museum, I personally have never entered its premises (sad but true).

It’s a beautiful angular, glass-and-steel modernist building on the banks of the Sava River. The works by Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh and other local artists are locked away, but there are still art pieces around the museum that you can see.

But I think that one of the best pieces this museum has to offer is the building that it calls its home. You should take a walk by the Sava river, take a left turn and just observe it for a couple of moments. It stands alone in the greenery of the meadow that surrounds it, with a few paths that can be seen in the grass. A real jewel of contemporary art: the building itself.
