Mumok - Museum of Modern Art
With The Present of Modernism, mumok - Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien questions the great utopian project of modernism for its topicality and its potential for future generations. The show presents the collection of classical modernism in a new arrangement that includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, furniture and architectural models.
For the first time, the mumok is also focusing on Austria in a collection presentation: drawings by Josef Hoffmann, architectural models by Adolf Loos, and photographs by Dora Kallmus can be seen. Since 1999, the Baloise Art Prize has been awarded annually to two up-and-coming artists in the "Art Statements" section at Art Basel. Jenni Tischer, who along with Kemang Wa Lehulere was awarded this prize in 2013, will exhibit at mumok in 2014 and thus also receive her first institutional solo exhibition in Austria.
