It feels great being finally able to go inside the building that I had never set foot in before and see so many things that were hidden in its basements.
It was founded in 1958 as the Museum of Modern Art and it was the first Contemporary Art museum in this part of Europe. 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 just some that MOCAB has in its collection.
But 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.
Now, I did say it reopened but it is gonna be closed to the public again, but just until March 28th due to the dismantling of ‘The Cleaner’ exhibition of Marina Abramovic and preparations for the Acquisitions exhibition.
But it’s still worth the walk, just to see the building up close.
Tip: When it is open, and If you are a student the ticket would be only 150 dinars and each Wednesday its free entrance for everyone.
