MUCA Munich

We believe that art has the potential to change perceptions of the world. Our aim is to create spaces for a young and ephemeral art form, where street and urban art is in dialogue with other genres of contemporary art, cross-fertilising and leading to new insights.

As a meeting place for urban and contemporary art, the MUCA impresses with its high-calibre exhibition programme. On several "art experience levels", the MUCA not only presents the works of renowned, internationally acclaimed artists, we are also keen to offer a platform for experimental formats and interesting positions.

The MUCA does not only see itself as inserting urban art into the contemporary art discourse and musealising a young art form. Special attention is paid to art education. The exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive programme of talks with artists and experts, readings and guided tours.

Museum in the middle of Munich

In the heart of Munich's beautiful old town, just a stone's throw away from Marienplatz, the first Museum of Urban Art in Germany is located in a former substation of the public utility company on a total area of approx. 2,000 sqm.

In the main building of the MUCA, the works of nationally and internationally renowned artists from the urban and street art scene as well as contemporary art await you on three levels in changing exhibitions.

As part of the current Damien Hirst solo show at the MUCA Museum in Munich, you can admire Hirst's largest "spot painting" on our Giant Wall in the outdoor area: With its 1,000 square metres and 540 different colour circles, it can even be seen from the Munich Frauentürmen.
