MUCA founders Stephanie and Christian Utz look back on 25 years of collecting.
The Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) has always aimed to be a preserver of artworks that come from the ephemeral, urban ecosystem. With over 1,200 exhibits, the MUCA collection is now one of the most important collections of urban art in Europe.
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the MUCA is presenting selected works and objects that are representative of the collector couple's many years of personal passion and that address the epochal and social development of street and urban art.
The MUCA collection has its starting point in 1998 with the first works attributable to Pop Art culture. These now serve museum visitors as a starting point through a journey through time. Visitors will gain an insight into how the core collection has grown since the 2000s to include increasingly outstanding works and has become linked to contemporary art more broadly.
Works have been thematically grouped together in various exhibition areas, enabling the viewer to connect motifs from the collection with historical genres of contemporary art. For example, there are points of reference between a JR to Christo, an Andy Warhol to Harland Miller, Frank Auerbach with Antony Micallef, or Banksy with Keith Haring.
The exhibition highlights themes and trends from pop art, art in public space, socio-political/propaganda art to contemporary figurative painting.
In addition, there will be special highlights within the MUCA supporting programme over the course of 25 weeks, in several time periods.
