We believe that art has the potential to change the perception on the world. It is our goal to provide a space for this young and transient form of art, in which street and urban art engage in a dialogue with other genres of contemporary art, establishing an atmosphere of synergy, inspiration and creative openess.
As the place to be for urban and contemporary art lovers, MUCA offers a high-profile exhibition program. Artworks by renowned, internationally celebrated artists can be found on multiple art experience levels throughout the museum. In addition, MUCA provides a platform for experimental formats and outstanding in- and outdoor art projects.
The museum not only seeks to include urban art in the contemporary art discourse and to exhibit a young form of art: a special focus is set on education. Exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive program of lectures, high-profile speakers, and guided tours.
A stone’s throw from Marienplatz, the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) is situated in a former substation on nearly 2,000 square meters.
The façade of the MUCA was designed by the renowned street artist Stohead, who made the museum an art object itself. Museum visitors enter the building through a calligraphically designed “door” reflecting the connectivity between the interior and exterior venue. This link underlines the co-existence of urban art between the in- and outdoors.
