collection

The collection

The world’s largest collection of Vienna Actionism Museum comprises the diverse oeuvre of the four main protagonists: Günter Brus (1938-2024), Otto Muehl (1925-2013), Hermann Nitsch (1938-2022) and Rudolf Schwarzkogler (1940-1969) from 1957-1973. The collection is supplemented by early works by Adolf Frohner and Alfons Schilling, who had a significant influence on the emergence of Vienna Actionism.

The collection, which also contains extensive archive material, is to be made accessible and utilised for research purposes.

It consists of collages, screen prints, posters, photographs and film works. The museum will present the collection to an interested public in both permanent and temporary exhibitions, supplemented by international loans and contemporary contributions.
