New task for emop partner in Vienna
The MUSA, the exhibition space of the art collection of the city of Vienna near the City Hall and EMOP’s main partner in Vienna, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
But from January 2018 on, the Musa will be affiliated to the Wien Museum and Berthold Ecker, head of the city department responsible for art purchases and their presentation, will also be curator of this Museum.
The MUSA collections will be transferred to the Vienna Museum.
Berthold Ecker considers that this change is to be considered as a structural upgrade. The main task of a Culture department is to promote art, to act as a museum is not his main goal. Therefore it makes sense to transfer the collection to the Wien Museum. Extract source Kurier.at 29/08/2017
