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.
When Lentos acquired Günter Zamp Kelp’s extensive archive in 2020, it incorporated important works of Haus-Rucker-Co into its collection. The exhibition, which is being staged in collaboration with Günter Zamp Kelp, will present major parts of this body of work for the first time and provide an overview of the group’s diverse œuvre.
