OPA Foundation – an entity developed by OPA – was created in 2016 with the aim of developing utilitarian and constructive art practices as an alternative to critical ones. Its focus is solidarity, education and contribution to the community.
So far under this name we developed the long-term project ZaUm Archive – an open online archive of Macedonian art. For several years we have been digitizing secondary materials related to modern and contemporary Macedonian art, such as catalogs, articles, VHS tapes, etc., many of them in the state of disappearing.
So far, the archive covers over 7.000 events.
