Museum Hundertwasser

Art meets ecology.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was one of Austria's most important 20th-century artists, working in a counterculture vein, famous for his multicolour buildings and championing of ecological balance, and filling building façades all over Vienna with greenery. In the 1990s, this onetime furniture factory at Untere Weissgerberstrasse 13 was turned into a perfect example - on the inside exhibiting a great many of the artist's colourful paintings and other works, along with temporary exhibitions of other artists' work. But perhaps the museum's most striking attributes are found on the façade itself, in Hundertwasser's signature mix of architecture, colours, painting, sculpture, and ecology.
