THE MUSEUM OF AFRICAN ART AT THE BIENNALE OF LUANDA
Organized in partnership between UNESCO, the Government of Angola and the African Union, the Biennale of Luanda - “Pan-African Forum for the Culture of Peace” – from 27 November to 2 December 2021 – aims to promote the prevention of violence and the resolution of conflicts, by encouraging cultural exchanges in Africa, intergenerational dialogue and the promotion of gender equality.
The second edition of the Biennale of Luanda will be celebrated under the African Union's 2021 theme, "Arts, Culture and Heritage: Levers for Building the Africa We Want" in a hybrid format, mixing virtual contents and live events.
As part of the Festival of Cultures of the Biennale of Luanda 2021, several countries – including Serbia – are celebrating Africa and its many diasporas with a range of cultural content presented in virtual national pavilions. The Serbian Pavilion, organized by the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, proudly presents to you the Museum of African Art in Belgrade as the first and only anticolonial museum in Europe entirely dedicated to the cultures and arts of the African continent.
The Museum of African Art continuously strives to popularize and bring closer knowledge about the artistic creation of Africa and to contribute to the development and strengthening of friendly relations between Serbia and countries of the African continent. The Biennale of Luanda offers a valuable opportunity for this Belgrade museum to present its programs on a global platform that provides equal participation and space for the exchange of ideas and offers examples of “good practice” and intergenerational dialogue. These include: The Afro Festival, the “Reflect – Namibia 30 years after liberation” exhibition, the “Contemporary Art of Africa in the Pandemic” conference and a selection of electronic publications are just some of the presented contents of the Museum of African Art, celebrating the limitless wealth and cultural diversity of Africa.
