About the Museum
Mudam is the foremost museum dedicated to contemporary art in Luxembourg, and strives to be attentive to every discipline. Its collection and program reflect current artistic trends and appreciate the emergence of new artistic practices on a national and international scale.
The building, by famous Sino-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei, is a marvelous dialogue between the natural and historical environment. Standing against the vestiges of Fort Thüngen, it follows the course of the former surrounding walls, and is rooted in the Park Dräi Eechelen (planned by landscapist, Michel Desvigne) which offers magnificent views onto the old town just a short walk from the European district of Kirchberg.
The Mudam Collection bares witness to contemporary creation in all its technical and aesthetic forms, while remaining open to every other artistic discipline: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, as well as design, fashion, graphic design and new media are all put on show. Resolutely anchored in the contemporary, the collection includes works by 100 artists, including, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Daniel Buren, Blinky Palermo, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, and Julian Schnabel.
