first_img“The Bečar Museum is designed so that when you enter you have a space where you will buy a ticket, where you will get basic information, take headphones or you will hire a companion to lead the group through the museum. You will be able to go through the museum in a group or individually. It is designed to introduce you to the heritage of a Bečar, to get to know who is a Bečar and who is Bečar, to present Bečar through the life of a man from the cradle and throughout life, Bečar is also connected in the context of world heritage because it is not a tune that is only associated with Pleternica, it is a tune that is sung throughout Slavonia, in Baranja, even parts of Vojvodina and Hungary. The Bečar Museum will not be what can be heard talking to citizens, various exhibits behind glass, but it will be a presentation of heritage with all modern techniques: music, video and visual recordings, and at some point you will even have the feeling of running through the cereal fields. I believe that we will open the doors of the museum in a year or a year and a half at the latest”, Said Antonija Jozic, the mayor of Pleternica. RELATED NEWS: Dragana Lucija Ratković Aydemir, founder and director of the company Muza, explains that the future Museum of Bečar will be a real contemporary museum that will use all the latest museological techniques, which will tell a traditional heritage culture in a modern way. “It will be in the museum and folk costumes and other objects, because it is very important, but we will use other methods to contextualize these objects. First of all, this is not a museum of folk costumes, but a museum of Bečar. And the fugitive is running. So, we have to figure out how the becarac will be in focus all the time, but then we will, of course, talk about other anthropological, ethnographic, historical phenomena that are associated with the becarac.”, Explained Ratković Aydemir and added that a large team is working on the project. Bećarac is on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage, and the Bećarac Museum is part of a large project led by the City of Pakrac with the City of Pleternica as one of the partners. Thus, Pleternica, in addition to Trg bećarca, will also have the Museum of Bećarca.
