History of the Zepter Museum
Belgrade became richer for another museum, on July 1, 2010. The building in which this museum is located was designed by the Croatian architect Dionis Andrija Sunko. The ground floor was built for the needs of the First Croatian Savings Bank, while the first floors were intended for housing. This building is one of the rare examples of Berlin and Hungarian secession in Belgrade. It was in various properties to eventually become a museum space. Studio Urošević performed an aesthetic reconstruction so that works of art could be placed in these rooms. The Zepter Gallery was opened on April 28, 1994, and it hosted very important exhibitions.
What to see in the Zepter Museum?
The Zepter Museum can be said to function as a cultural center because the concept of the museum itself is different from the others. Namely, in addition to the gallery, promotions, lectures, thematic meetings and video projections take place in the museum premises. The museum's collection is constantly growing, so the number of represented artists is growing. In the gallery you can see works such as:
