Pioneers of Post-War Modern Art

13 May-5 March 2017. The mumok dedicates an exhibition to two important figures involved in building up the museum's collection of post-war art: Werner Hofmann and Viktor Matejka.

Hofmann (1928-2013) laid the foundations of the collection, assembling works by Expressionists such as Kokoscka, Futurists such as Balla, Surrealists such as Magritte, and exponents of Bauhaus and Dada such as Ernst and Mondrian respectively.

Matejka (1901-1993) gifted the museum a valuable archive thanks to his role as Vienna's first post-war culture councillor. He used his position to welcome back artists such as Kokoschka and Schönberg who had been expelled from Austria during the Nazi regime.

Mon 14.00-19.00. Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00. 
Thurs 10.00-21.00.
