MUCA believes that art has the potential to change the perception on the world. It is their goal to provide space for such a young and transient form of art, in which street and urban art engage in a dialogue with other genres of contemporary art, establishing an atmosphere of synergy, inspiration and creative openess.
As the place to be for urban and contemporary art lovers, MUCA offers a high- profile exhibition program. On several “art experience levels” art works of renowned, internationally celebrated artists can be found throughout the museum. In addition to that MUCA provides a platform for experimental formats and outstanding in- and outdoor art projects.
The museum not only seeks to include urban art into the contemporary art discourse and to exhibit a young form of art. A special focus is set on art education. Exhibitions are accompanied by an extensive program of lectures, high-profile speakers, and guided tours.
Street art as a form of art of the 21st century is rightly considered as a global celebrated phenomenon, nevertheless street art hasn’t arrived enough in the art discourse. The newly built Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) wants to make a change by enrolling street art into art history and by building a bridge between the international art scene, artists and the public.
The idea of MUCA is to bring art and its people together to a place of self- reflection, with the main question of what a visionary museum stands for. The heart of the museum is the community which they invite to become part of the creative process and to look behind the scenes of their exhibitions.
