The Museum der Moderne Salzburg is committed to the conservation, promotion and dissemination of modern and contemporary visual arts. The exhibitions and activities in both museum buildings emphasize the significance of art for modern society and offer a broad range of in-depth exploration of artistic positions for the local population and an international, culturally interested audience. This is ensured by the maintenance and continuous enlargement of the comprehensive collection, which has its focus on images of man, through acquisitions, donations and permanent loans. Apart from the presentation of international works of art, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg also serves as platform for contemporary representatives of the Austrian art scene, who are promoted by the museum and put in an international context. The foremost aim is to offer contemporary art education to broaden people's horizon and arouse their interest in modern art through guided tours, artist talks and discussions and to create enthusiasm for art in children and young people.
