Lentos Friends

Friends support and help one another where they can. For example in researching, collecting, preserving and communicating. The Association of Friends of the Lentos aims to support and promote the museum. Through the purchase of art works the Association supports the museum direction in further expanding the Collection. Since the Association was founded in 1985, members have purchased works by Tony Cragg, Gerwald Rockenschaub or EVA & ADELE and others. With their friendship they contribute to strengthening Lentos as one of the leading addresses for modern and contemporary art, thus promoting the important social, artistic and academic tasks of the museum. The museum also gives something back to you as a good friend: you become part of a pulsating art scene and provide – tax deductible – support for one of the most important museums of modern and contemporary art in Austria.

Upcoming Events

Date Title Time
Wed 03.11Treffpunkt Lentos Freunde: Ida Maly. Negotiating the Stylistic Maze“

Brigitte Reutner-Doneus leads exclusively for the Lentos Friends through the exhibition of the Austrian artist (1894−1941), who lived in Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Paris. Institutionalized as a schizophrenic” in a mental institution in the late 1920s, the works she created there acted as prophecies of the horrors of the Nazis’ euthanasia” of psychiatric inmates. Her work documents the path of a talented painter in the supposedly Golden Twenties, who found her individual artistic language between the styles”.

6:30 pm–9:00 pm
Tue 23.11Treffpunkt Lentos Friends extern: Built for Everyone“ at Nordico

With Curt Kühne (1882−1963) and Julius Schulte (1881−1928), two important planners dedicated themselves to the goal of mastering the structural requirements of a growing city and adapting to the developments of the time in the first third of the 20th century. The public and private buildings they created are of high design quality and still characterize the Linz cityscape today. Director Bina will lead an exclusive tour for the Lentos Friends through the exhibition at the Nordico Stadtmuseum, which uses plans, historical and current photographs, and contemporary documents to show the work of the two architects and their impact.
