The exhibition “Intangible cultural heritage of Serbia”, presenting elements of intangible cultural heritage of Serbia included in the National Register and the UNESCO Representative list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity, was open at the Slovene Ethnographic Museum in Ljubljana on May 15th 2018.
The exhibition prepared by Danijela Filipović, curator at the Center for Intangible Cultural Heritage at the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade, presents the traditional skills and knowledge, custom practices and beliefs, rooted in the past and preserved to this day by communities in Serbia as part of their living heritage and an indicator of their identity. Also presented were segments of heritage in Serbia which received international visibility and recognition through inclusion in the UNESCO representative list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity – family slava and traditional folk dance kolo. The National Register, maintained at the Center for Intangible Cultural Heritage of Serbia, presently includes 37 elements showing the richness and diversity of cultural heritage present in the territory of Serbia, simultaneously serving as a reminder that different communities living in the same cultural space share and exchange traditional forms of behavior and safeguard them for the generations yet to come.
The exhibition, organized in cooperation of the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade and Slovene Ethnographic Museum, will be available to the visitors of the Slovene Ethnographic Museum until June 4th 2018.
