Having grown up in an upper-middleclass environment, after World War I Emmy Haesele (1894–1987) and her physician husband settled in Unken, a municipality near Lofer. Engrossed in philosophy and theosophy, she began to experiment with drawing in 1931. The writer and brother-in-law of Alfred Kubin, Oskar A. H. Schmitz, soon arranged a meeting between the metaphysically inclined artist and the renowned draughtsman. A relationship lasting until 1936 developed between the aging magician based in Zwickledt and young, self-assured Emmy.

The collection is the heart and the soul of our museum. The basic idea underpinning this presentation of the museum’s collection is restoring the chronological sequence of works, which will allow visitors to get to know the most important movements and styles of art history from the 19th century to the present in the original. In addition to this, we are putting the focus on artists who have a special relationship with Linz and the Lentos, such as VALIE EXPORT and Herbert Bayer.
