Saturday, 19.4.2025, 10:00 to 18:00 The Collection

Lentos Fassade Linz

An exciting foray through art history with well-known masterpieces, new positions and surprising encounters.

The collection is the heart and soul of our museum. The basic idea of the presentation is a chronological sequence that makes it possible 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, we focus on artists who have a special relationship to Linz and the Lentos, such as VALIE EXPORT and Herbert Bayer. Art history is not something static, on the contrary, the canon is constantly being rewritten and so there are constant reassessments and rediscoveries. In this way, the museum becomes an instrument for experiencing and understanding art history and leads to the temporary exhibitions, which are mainly devoted to contemporary art. In 2018, museum director Hemma Schmutz and her team gradually restructured the collection.
