Vienna (Austria)


The mumok is the largest museum in Central Europe for art since modernism. It makes the various aspects of the international and Austrian avant-garde accessible to everyone interested in the arts. The striking dark grey cuboid structure clad in basalt stone in the middle of the MuseumsQuartier's Wien houses an unusual collection featuring important works from Classic Modernism, Pop Art, Fluxus, and Viennese Actionism to present-day film and media art. From Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol and Franz West, the collection and special exhibitions represent a blend of tradition and experiment, past and present. The mumok cinema explores film in the context of visual art. A broad range of educational programs for adults and children ages four and up, a library, the mumok café, and the mumok shop complete the range of offerings for visitors. One of the most important objectives has been and continues to be to convey the historical and theoretical framework of art to the public through fostering discourse in the form of publications and academic events. mumok sees itself as a place for lively exploration of modern and contemporary art. This is art that gets involved and points out the ruptures and transformations in our society, that undermines tried and tested rituals, that makes us more sensitive and expands our imagination, that facilitates new ways of seeing.
