International cooperation of the Museum of Vojvodina
Over the last four decades, ever since its foundation , the Museum’s international cooperation with partner organizations has been remarkable indeed. Various ways of cooperation with foreign museums have been going on, such as: exchange of both exhibitions and experts, participation at international and professional conferences, joint research projects and exchange of museum related publications. Back in the seventies, the Museum was cooperating with 15 museums from 12 countries.
Over the last five years, the Museum signed protocols of cooperation in compliance with the international rules approved by ICOM, with museums from Romania (Museum of Banat from Timisoara and Museum from Rešica); Germany (Central Museum of the Danube Basin Swabians, in Ulm); Hungary (Regional Museum in Kecskemét), Croatia (City Museum in Rijeka) and Macedonia (Museum of Macedonia in Skoplje). Cooperation with these museums means joint projects as well as exchange of both professionals and exhibitions.
In 2008, The Museum of Vojvodina signed a protocol on cooperation based on the principles defined by ICOM, joining that way the Association of Central European city and historical museums, which comprises museums from Italy, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia.
Alongside the above mentioned forms of cooperation, the Museum of Vojvodina participates at international conferences and also lends certain items to museums abroad. This way, the Museum keeps in touch with museums in over 20 countries in Europe.
Through the exchange of museum publications, the Museum of Vojvodina stays connected to 192 institutions of culture from 29 countries worldwide.
