Preview 2019


Defining the museum’s mission, building on existing partnerships, strengthening our network of relationships with cultural institutions and our audiences: these are the cornerstones of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg’s plans for the next several years.

The programming for 2019 builds on the proven tradition of thematic presentations of art from our own diverse holdings as well as the eminent collections on permanent loan to the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, while the exhibitions of the art of Asger Jorn and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner draw a line from classic modernism to contemporary art. Jorn’s exuberant creativity reflects his playful approach to artistic conventions and articulates a sly dialectic between tradition and satire, between critique and encomium. Kirchner, on the other hand, harnessed photography as a medium of image cultivation, inventing a fictional art critic who kept contemporaries guessing for no fewer than thirteen years and ran a very original marketing campaign for his creator’s work. Sigalit Landau’s exhibition Salt Years spotlights a vital position in contemporary art: her work probes the existential and ambivalent qualities of challenging and extraordinary experiences. Visitors can also look forward to dystopian miniatures in the exhibition A Mind of Winter and a wide-ranging survey of artists’ attempts to render the boundlessness of the macrocosm, gathered in the exhibition Fly Me to the Moon on occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Finally, we will open our galleries to the riches of our collections and invite the public to discover hidden treasures.
