Albertina
Museum / Vienna

The Albertina museums profile and focus rest on three pillars: First, the palace with its neoclassical staterooms and their original interior decoration; second, the operation of a modern museum housing seven principal collections; and, third, the exhibition program based on these collections and devoted to the pioneers of art history, from the Renaissance to the present day.

With the museum’s assumption of the Batliner Collection, 2007 saw the Albertina museum put works on permanent exhibit for the first time in its history. These holdings offer visitors an instructive tour through the world of modern painting, from French impressionism to Picasso, that is unique in Austria. With its contemporary works, the Batliner Collection complements the large contemporary art section of the Albertina museums Graphic Arts Collection, which is comprised of 26,000 drawings and prints.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

    Colombian anthropologist and artist Juan Pablo Plazas is fascinated by the ability of people and communities to interpret the world in different ways. In his practice, he starts from everyday objects and raw materials that have special material or formal properties. With wonder and a sense of humour, he takes them out of their ordinary context, turns them into sculptures or gives them a role in a performance. (more…)
