Abstract:‘The museum scene in Vienna will no longer be the same — instead, it will be more exciting, more attractive and more competitive by international standards,’ states Gerald Matt, the artistic and managing director of the Vienna Kunsthalle in this article. He presents the architectural and artistic decisions that went into the conception of the Kunsthalle in the Museum Quarter, and he discusses the role it will play, particularly for modern art in Vienna, where, in ‘an envionment of Baroque tradition and historical grandeur, the new Kunsthalle has something of a meterorite’ about it.
