The Serbian Cultural Association Prosvjeta (abbreviated: SKD "Prosvjeta" or СКД "Просвјета") is the central cultural, educational and scientific institution of the Serbs in Croatia, with the aim of preserving and developing national identity.
Prosvjeta is managed by principles of multiculturalism and interculturalism, and their own cultural awareness. In accordance with their understanding of the national identity of the Serbs in Croatia, Prosvjeta affirms its value in two ways: as part of the Croatian culture and as part of the Serbian people culture as a whole.

SNG's activities were initially focused on the acquisition, research, rescue, and presentation of cultural heritage, especially in all disciplines of art, painting, sculpture, drawing, and graphics, and gradually other areas of artistic creation have joined them. In 1960, the SNG's acquisition activity expanded into artworks of applied art and industrial art, and from 1965 to Naïve Art (obtained through international tours - Naïve Art Triennale); later it expanded in the field of scenography and artistic photography. Since 1986, the collections of architecture (studies, projects, models) have been profiled. The entire SNG collection consists of about 70,000 artworks, and interest is concentrated on the idea of identifying with the history of Slovakia, with its cultural heritage. The focus lies on the field of art of Slovak provenance and art in Slovakia.
Today the SNG’s complex of buildings in Bratislava consists of the original structure of the Baroque Water Barracks, with an additional structure (the bridge and administrative building from the 1970s), and the Esterházy Palace (built in 1870).
Details about the operation of the gallery can be found in its Annual Report from 2016 available in Notes (only in the Slovak language).
