About the Modern Museum of ViennaThe Museum of Modern Art of Vienna is an industrial looking building, a reminder of a threatening and alienated industrial enterprise. And yes, its structure may seem a bit depressing, but the Mumok, the Museum of Modern Art of Vienna, is one of the most interesting museums in the world for modern and contemporary art lovers.
The Mumok is located in the Vienna Museum Quarter and from its exterior, one can already understand what art it presents, since the building is built of bricks that resemble black basalt and has almost no windows. The exposed lighting and ventilation systems within the museum also emphasize the fact that this museum deals with modern art.
The museum exhibits thousands of works from the early 20th century up to today. There is modern art and art by contemporary artists, professionals and celebrities, alongside young and beginning artists, who show promising talent.
You can see here important works of classical modernist artists, such as Picasso, Kandinsky and Paul Klee. Pop art artists, such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and so on. The works include paintings, sculptures, video art works, constellations and more.
Try something new, and come and see the works. Some start laughing at first, and can be embarrassed and say to each other, "I can paint like that too!" But slowly there is a chance you will see how aesthetic and beauty, intelligence and talent are in the modern art of the talented artists who are willing to absorb even mockery, as long as no one will remain indifferent...
