Museum der Moderne | Salzburg
The Museum der Moderne in Salzburg is one of the leading museums of contemporary art in Austria.
The museum is actually constituted of two different venues, located in different areas of Salzburg: the Rupertinum branch is housed in a baroque palace in the Salzburg historical center, while the Mönchsberg is housed inside a modern building, designed by German architect Friedrich Hoff Zwink, located on top of the Mönchsberg hill, that overlooks the old city.
The permanent exhibition of the Museum der Moderne features both artworks belonging to the museum patrimony and pieces on loan from other institutions, such as the Generali Foundation.
The museum galleries present a diverse set of artworks: paintings, sculptures, graphic works, photographs, and new media.
The painting and sculpture section includes works by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Edvard Munch, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, among many others, and a comprehensive selection of works by Austrian artists.
The graphics collection includes important pieces by Goya, Oskar Kokoschka, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Gustav Klimt, Giacomo Manzù and Egon Schiele, to name a few.
The photographic gallery is one of the most important collections dedicated to Austrian photographers.
The museum organizes temporary exhibitions, special events, guided tours, and educational activities, particularly addressed to young people.
At the museum, a specialized library and a restaurant are available to the visitors.
