The idea for the project entitled The Rabbit Who Ate a Museum was incepted in 1999 during the exhibition and performance Into the White by Nikola Džafo.
The rabbit theme is present in the work of Nikola Džafo: “Art Garden” in Rex (1994); elements of set design in the play “Evil Spirits” in CKZD (1995); the exhibition “In Which Bush Does the Rabbit Lie” (1997), and later it would grow into the idea of creating a museum. Next came the exhibition “Departure into Whiteness.” It was opened in the Belgrade Gallery of ULUS, on May 27, 1999, at the time when Serbia was in the defiant war with NATO forces. At the opening, Džafo painted all of his twelve paintings over with white color and invited his acquaintances to send their works and answer the question: „In Which Bush Does the Rabbit Lie?“: “The works will be shown in honor of my friend, black rabbit Kunene Mandindi”. The response was great. Out of the drawings, collages and paintings and other material that came, the book The Rabbit Who Ate a Museum was created, named after a drawing-donation of the same name by Miroljub Filipović Filimir, and a certain number of gifts – objects in the shape of a rabbit – are kept by the author in his atelier in Petrovaradin. The project was then joined by Vesna Grginčević. From the original collection, with acquisitions and donations by
donors, the collection eventually grew and the idea about a Museum came up.  

The Museum was first introduced to the public on September 2, 2006. at the 12th Art Biennale in Pančevo , which is considered the date of its foundation. The title of the book, “The Rabbit Who Ate a Museum,” was spontaneously adopted as the title of the Museum. Segments of the Museum were then shown at other exhibitions. In 2009 an attempt to unite private entrepreneurship and art was made and the Museum moved to the Rabbit Farm in Krčedin. After a year all the flaws of such an idea came up and “The Rabbit Who At a Museum” came back to Petrovaradin. The collection is presently comprised of 1500 objects grouped into ten collections, but the Museum did not stop at that. The rabbit theme is approached in an all-encompassing way: by means of art (visual arts, film, music, literature), natural sciences (biology, mathematics, history), by developing an ecological conscience and social engagement pointing to all the shortcomings and illnesses of the society, the project represents a small contribution to a more beautiful and quality life, imagination, brightness and progress in every respect.
“The Rabbit Who Ate a Museum” is still looking for a permanent residence.
