mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna

MODERN. CONTEMPORARY. INTERNATIONAL.
The Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna (mumok) is the largest museum for modern and contemporary art in Central Europe with an extensive collection of international art from the 20th century and the present. Situated in the heart of historic Vienna, with its permanent collection and changing contemporary exhibitions presented over 4500m², mumok is the ideal location for experiencing the art of our times.

THE COLLECTION
The collection spans the full range from works from classical modernity, Cubism, Futurism and Surrealism up to the art movements of the 1960s and 1970s, Pop Art, Fluxus and Nouveau Réalisme. The collection contains early 20th century paintings and sculptures from among others Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti. In addition to important Pop Art works by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, other significant positions such as Fluxus, conceptual art and Viennese Actionism are also present. In the coming years, mumok’s collection will continue to expand addressing current positions in film, video and photography.

EXHIBITIONS
Visitors to mumok will find a changing programme of major exhibitions of present-day and avant-garde works from 1945 onwards. Selected pieces from the museum’s own collection help illustrate the theme in question.
From modern to pop art, mumok represents a contemporary experience in the middle of Vienna’s historic centre.
