MSU
Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb

The Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb is a living place of creation, display, interpretation, and preservation of contemporary art in all its forms. Its goal is to encourage and uphold the understanding of contemporary art through professional, innovative, and educative usage of exhibitions and collections, thus enabling different groups of visitors to learn, be creative, and get a unique experience. As a multi-program institution it mediates heritage and the contemporary scene, reaching from visual to performing and film art, thus making it an active and critical part of our community.

The Museum of Contemporary Art primarily attempts to be a public and autonomous venue where the categories of social engagement, responsibility, and equal opportunities for everybody are tested and examined on daily basis. Let us question that which has been already achieved through direct communication with artists and the public, through our respect for their experience, so that we have been able to change and gain strength.
