After a year-long renovation of the former municipal substation, in 2016 MUCA opened its doors – Germany’s first museum for urban and contemporary art.
A private museum founded by husband and wife art enthusiasts, Stephanie and Christian Utz, MUCA sets as its highest maxim the aim to house this young, aspiring movement and to consolidate urban art within the contemporary art discourse. Our exhibitions centre on our in-house collection, which has grown into one of the largest in Europe of this genre.
MUCA considers itself a community space for urban and contemporary art that captivates through high-caliber programming. Across three levels, along with our MUCA Bunker next door, original artworks by renowned, internationally acclaimed artists are on display in changing special exhibitions, as well as in our permanent collection.
