MUCA is a unique cultural institution for urban and contemporary art that consistently impresses with its top-class programming. MUCA not only houses the works of well-respected, internationally celebrated artists across several “art experience levels”, but also promotes experimental formats in the framework of satellite projects (e.g. Kunstlabor).
MUCA is not just about establishing urban art within the contemporary art discourse and providing a platform for a young art form. MUCA pays particular attention to art education in various forms. The exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive programme of artist and expert discussions, readings, tours and workshops (especially for children and adolescents).
MUCA consolidates Germany as a location for creatives and creates alliances with cultural institutions, artists, the private sector and municipal partners. MUCA is an important figurehead in Munich’s city marketing.
In 2019, MUCA Museum and its projects counted over 100,000 visitors.
So far, MUCA has only been fiananced by its founding couple, Stephanie and Christian Utz. MUCA’s satellite projets have also been supported by sponsors. Upon the establishment of the MUCA Foundation as a non-profit, a high-level board was convened and the fundraising professionally expanded.
The MUCA Foundation’s goal is to expand and ensure a high-quality exhibition programme with inspiring and fresh projects that add to the state-funded art scene in Munich.
The foundation’s main interests are:
The purpose of the foundation is the direct funding of art and cultural activities in the scope of MUCA Museum. This activity is solely charitable. The MUCA Foundation acts as the carrier of the museum and its collection, including the exhibitions and accompanying programme such as artist talks, guided tours, readings and art event formats.
Donations to the MUCA foundation fund large art projects and expand our planning horizon to further increase the quality of our exhibitions and maintain museum operations.
