MOK gallery is an abbreviation for modern kontemporêr, the Afrikaans for modern contemporary. The mission of the gallery is to give artists a platform from where their art can communicate, whether it be social, political, cultural or simply aesthetic. The gallery wants to contribute to a society where people have a better understanding of each other. Art assists in building cultural bridges, creating a better functioning society. The gallery is located in Ansella’s house, dating from 1685, on the wine farm Muratie Wine Estate, Stellenbosch. Other activities on Muratie Wine Estate include cycling and walking trails, a restaurant, accommodation, a gin distillery and of course wine tasting. Muratie is well known for their award winning wines.
