In January 2017 the collectors, and husband and wife, Gertraud and Dieter Bogner gave a very special gift to mumok—approximately thirty works by the Austrian-American architect, artist, stage designer, designer, and theorist Friedrich Kiesler. From November 30, 2018, one of Kiesler’s major works, Endless House (1950), will go...


Enjoy – the Changing mumok Collection

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...


Heimo Zobernig

Painting, along with sculpture, film, performance, and design, is a central component of the intermedia art of Heimo Zobernig. Since the beginning of his artistic practice in the early 1980s, the artist has built up a comprehensive painterly oeuvre, always based on his attempt to explore color like a “scientist.” Thus, in Zobernig’s...


Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans’s artistic practice attributes central importance to the observation of people, their relationship to one another, and their connection to the things around them. These subjective relations and modes of perceiving bodies, images, materials, or surfaces are undergoing massive shifts in light of the current health...


Huang Po-Chih

Huang Po-Chih (* 1980 in Taoyuan) belongs to a generation of artists socialized in a time of democratic reform and rapid economic growth in Taiwan.

Hugo Canoilas

Hugo Canoilas, Kapsch Contemporary Art prizewinner 2020/2021, transforms the exhibition gallery into a walk-in stage for painting. The entire floor is laid out with cloth on which the artist has painted a scenario of interlocking flowing forms with island-like centers. The blue ground and the fantastic tentacular and colorful...


Ane Mette Hol

Ane Mette Hol explores marginal phenomena of art production. Her eye locked on minor matter—items that fall on the ground while making art in the studio, for instance, or traces left in an exhibition space after installing the works—she sharpens the viewers’ awareness of the conditions surrounding artistic production.

The high...

DEFROSTING THE ICEBOX

RAID THE ICEBOX 1 with Andy Warhol (1969–1970) is seen as one of the earliest examples of a collection exhibition curated by an artist. Though the Warhol-curated exhibition did not feature any works by the artist himself, it contained several presentation strategies that broke with traditional museum standards: Instead of...

MISFITTING TOGETHER

"I was reflecting that most people thought the Factory was a place where everybody had the same attitudes about everything; the truth was, we were all odds-and-ends misfits, somehow misfitting together." Andy Warhol’s titular words serve as the starting point for this exhibition. The artist’s last exhibition at mumok was in 1981, when...

Having Lived - Ingeborg Strobl

Ingeborg Strobl’s work is in the tradition of conceptual and cross-media art. In her objects, installations, collages, paintings, photographs, videos, and publications, images of nature and of animals play a key role as mirrors of society. Strobl is interested in the marginal, covert, and repressed, and her work also displays a...


Steve Reinke. Butter

"My work wants me dead, I know. It is all it ever talks about," writes Steve Reinke in an exchange of letters on the occasion of his exhibition at mumok. Death and life, empathy and cruelty, sex and intimacy—it is the ‘big’ questions the artist is after in his work. In the best Nietzschean manner, however, Reinke considers man not a...
