We can never guess what’s showing at mumok, the museum of modern arts, on any given day – though it’s sure to be something that piques your curiosity.

With exhibitions curated by both the artists themselves and guest curators, the museum provides an uninhibited space for the curator’s vision, allowing it to be completely transformed with the intention of display in mind: in effect, the museum itself becomes part of the exhibition. This is all very vague, we know, but mumok holds the true surprise in its MuseumsQuartier location.
