Photography Collection

Since the opening of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst in 1991, photography has ranked equally alongside painting, sculpture, drawing, film, video and other media within the context of its collection. From the beginning, the photographic works were never isolated in a gallery of their own, but integrated into the collection displays side by side with works in other media. The wide photo-technical spectrum within the MMK collection ranges from vintage prints on  baryta paper and monumental Cibachromes to Polaroids or slide installations. The holdings today encompass more than 2,500 photographs by eighty-one artists. The MMK accordingly has in its possession one of the leading photography collections worldwide, a collection which is unique not only due to its magnitude and its quality, but also - and above all - on account of its individual character and many unusual works.
