A land­mark open­ing, and not just for South Africa – the Zeitz Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Africa will be the big­gest mu­seum to open on the con­ti­nent in over a cen­tury. The $38-mil­lion (Dh140-mil­lion) in­sti­tu­tion will be filled en­tirely with work cre­ated since the year 2000, and will house the im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of Jochen Zeitz (Ger­man phi­lan­thropist and for­mer CEO of Puma), while it con­tin­ues to ac­quire works of its own. The mu­seum will be inside the 57m-high Grain Silo, a tow­er­ing re­minder of Cape Town’s in­dus­trial her­itage.
