MuseumsQuartier Wien / quartier21
The MuseumsQuartier Wien has been one of the world’s largest complexes for modern art and culture, since her opening in 2001. It offers a wide variety of programs and events, from performing arts, architecture, music, fashion, theater, dance, literature, and children’s culture to digital culture. It is an art space with a total of nine permanent museums and exhibition and event halls, an urban living space and meeting place for people interested in culture in Vienna, and a creativity space for the 60 or so art and culture initiatives based in quartier21.
Located in the middle of Vienna, the MuseumsQuartier is an oasis of culture and recreation with museums, the quartier21 creative cluster, courtyards, outdoor restaurants, cafés, and shops. Historic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries are joined with contemporary museum architecture to create a one-of-a-kind architectural setting that attracts about 3.8 million people a year.
Since fall 2009, quartier21 has been presenting multinational exhibitions and projects as part of the ‘freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL‘ program series in the exhibition space by the same name. The exhibitions focusing on quartier21’s core creative disciplines (digital art, fashion, and design) are organized in the MuseumsQuartier Wien in cooperation with the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs as well as other partners from Austria and abroad.
