2007 / September
On the 29th of September 2007 Gertraud and Dieter Bogner, the collectors, invited the MUMOK board to view thier collection in Schloss Buchberg.
This year Gertraud and Dieter Bogner presented the MUMOK with the main complex of their extensive collection of constructive and conceptual art that they have put together since the end of the 1970’s. During a constructive dialogue with the married couple the museum was able to select works and groups of works that closed gaps in the MUMOK’s collection or represented valuable extensions of the holdings. The Bogner gift comprises over 100 pictures, sculptures, objects and installations as well as 300 drawings, prints and archive material. Thus the MUMOK holdings in the area of constructive, structural and conceptual principles of design and thought experienced significant expansion.
On the way to Schloss Buchberg the board paid the artist Erwin Wurm a visit in his Schloss and studio in Limberg in Lower Austria.
