As a museum that enjoys great international prestige, the mumok brings the international and Austrian avant-garde, in all its different facets, to art lovers. From Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol to Albert Oehlen, Ulrike Müller, and Jakob Lena Knebl, the collections and special exhibitions represent a blend of tradition and experiment, past and present.

The mumok is a place for lively and critical discussion around modern and contemporary art – art that takes a stand, that reveals the fault lines and shifts in our societies, that raises our awareness and opens up new perspectives. Central to its program are coordinated exhibitions from the collection and special exhibitions, covering both single artists and thematic projects. As well as showcasing modernism and the neo-avantgarde, the mumok focuses on offering a platform to young, contemporary artists.
mumok cinema, with its themed film series, lectures, and discussions, has developed over recent years into a venue for critical dialogue between fine art and film. 
The mumok is a place of encounter and exchange, an interface between artists and those interested in art. It invites visitors to get closer to art in all its contradictions and facets. As part of its education work, the museum has developed a number of creative concepts that aim to promote understanding between cultures, social groups, and age groups and break down the barriers between fine art and a broader public.
