Museum Der Moderne Salzburg

One museum - two buildings

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg, the MdM Salzburg, (museum of modern art Salzburg) consists of two buildings at two spectacular locations:

The MdM Rupertinum in the old part of town: a baroque house for new artistic concepts.

The MdM Mönchsberg (museum of modern art) on the Mönchsberg: within a contemporary framework.

The MdM Mönchsberg lies on an exposed ridge over the old city and presents itself as new and actual architecture fit for exhibitions of larger size and presentations of international collections. The own extensive collection as well as large exhibitions of international contemporary art can be presented within an appropriate framework.

The MdM Rupertinum, established by the archbishops as a baroque city palace, is situated in direct neighborhood of the Festspielhaus and the cathedral district, and was adapted for the presentation of modern art.

Both buildings of the MdM Salzburg have approximately 3,000 m2 exhibition surface for thematic and monographic exhibitions of the art of the 20th and 21st centuries, while being also suitable for presentations of prints and photography.

History of the museum

Through his personal friendship with Oskar Kokoschka a considerable bundle of works of the famous Austrian expressionist came to the collection Rupertinum.

Research of Origin

The MdM Salzburg has been striving for years to document the origin of its works of art in every detail. Special attention is given to such works of art, whose origin is to be estimated before 1946. It concerns primarily works, which came into the possession of the county Salzburg before the establishment of museum in 1982. Moreover are concerned all works of art, which became part of the collection through auctions and donations.
