Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa Read


In Cape Town at the VNA Waterfront you can visit the awesome Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA)

The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) is a contemporary art museum located at the V&A ...
Founder: V&A Waterfront; Jochen Zeitz
Location: V&A Waterfront, Silo District, South Arm Road, Waterfront, Cape Town, 800...
Established: 2017

Hubby and I have visited this museum a couple of times and it's certainly one of the most interesting places I've been to with some amazing contemporary art pieces.

I regret that I cannot recall many of the artist names or details as it's been a while since I've been.

The good news for locals in South Africa is that we have free entry on Wednesdays between 09h00-13h00 which with the economy as it is makes for a good incentive to visit the museum at least once

Be warned that you will come across some interesting art concepts

Photographer Roger Ballen donates his entire body of work to Zeitz MOCAA Influential photographer Roger Ballen has announced a major donation of his entire body of work to the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA)

I include quite a few of his art works as I find it intriguing, disturbing on some levels but yet fun on others as we had a few good giggles looking at it all and taking it in. I include a link up top where you can read more on the photographer Robert Ballens.

A person is tied up inside the sheet, if I remember correctly it depicted human trafficking and the invisibility of the victims

*An interesting interpretation by Marianne Fasller and artis Kudzanai Chuirai about the bloody female form

The architecture astounds. The Zeitz MOCAA Museum used to silos that were converted into this stunning contemporary modern museum

Six flights of spiral staircase

The strengthened glass roof at the top of the building through which one can see down to the ground floor. A Scary place to stand for someone with a healthy fear of heights

The rest of the glass roof

Strong colors and rough textures

An amazing art piece with a worded message embedded in the painting

A war horse, I feel the red depicted the blood loss

A watercolor

Some of the original architecture incorporated

Not sure at all? 🤔 It looks like it should be a human representation?

And then we had some fun outside the museum where there's a whole lot of these funny swiveling, rotating seats which makes for a lot of fun and laughter.

This is a museum that I will visit again and again. It houses many local artists and has some quirky and fun art pieces that you won't forget in a hurry. Definitely a bucket list item if you are visiting South Africa.
