Ten years after joining the museum, Karola Kraus is organizing with her team a collection presentation that includes central gifts and acquisitions from the past decade. The selected works range from classical modernism to the present day, following the path of the collection’s development. Twenty years after mumok opened in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, and forty years after the founding of the Austrian Ludwig Foundation, this exhibition is both a survey of the past and a glimpse ahead to the future. As the past years are reviewed, new perspectives are proposed as basis for the museum’s future collection and exhibition activities. The collection exhibition Enjoy sets out to convey the intertwining of past and present as a living process of continual reassessment and revaluation that reflects everchanging socio-political, socio-cultural, and philosophical developments and discourses. The main themes cut across time and media: the depiction of life in society, the human body, and nature, as well as migration and the drawing of boundaries.


Curated by Karola Kraus with Manuela Ammer, Heike Eipeldauer, Rainer Fuchs, Naoko Kaltschmidt, Matthias Michalka
