Exhibitions Spring to Summer 2018

Throughout the spring of 2018, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg will once again attract visitors with a rich program of exceptional exhibitions. The shows opening in March and April will put the emphasis on the treasures in our own holdings. We start at the Mönchsberg venue with Austria. Photography 1970-2000, a presentation organized in collaboration with the Albertina in Vienna. A little later, our excellent collection of Japanese photographs from between 1960 and 1970 will be on display at the Rupertinum; both exhibitions will highlight our longstanding expertise in art photography.

If you have not seen the widely acclaimed exhibition Folklore. A Controversy with Works from the Collection, you will have the opportunity to do so through mid-April. Celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the Generali Foundation, the new presentation of art from the collections will unfold a dialog with the historical turning points that Austria commemorates in 2018. From the founding of the Republic of Austria in 1918 through the so-called Anschluss in 1938 and the Kristallnacht pogroms in November of that year to the social and political upheavals of 1968, these are events on which artists' works reflect from diverse angles. Finally, in late May, a comprehensive retrospective of the oeuvre of the Arte Povera artist Marisa Merz will open in the spacious galleries on the top floor of the Mönchsberg venue.

I look forward to experiencing these very special exhibitions with you!
