museum gugging

museum gugging is an exhibition venue for the presentation of the work of the Gugging Artists at its place of origin, while serving as a forum for international Art Brut at the same time.

With its special focus museum gugging has a unique position in Austria’s museum sector and is one of the most important exhibition houses for Art Brut in the world.

The museum aims for the highest level of quality and measures its endeavours against international exhibition standards. Visitor hospitality, service orientation, accessibility, and multilingualism are natural parts of our house’s culture.

museum gugging builds upon Jean Dubuffet’s concept of Art Brut and places it in an open scientific discourse. Dubuffet defined Art Brut as “raw” art; it is created spontaneously, unbiased, anti-intellectual, and free from popular trends. Since the 1970s the Gugging Artists have counted amongst the most important exponents of Art Brut. Jean Dubuffet personally recognised them as representatives of this art movement

The objective of museum gugging is to present the works of the Gugging Artists and to establish Art Brut as an international art movement. The exhibitions are compiled by the artistic director in cooperation with renowned Austrian and international curators. museum gugging puts strong emphasis on contemporary and open art education and warmly welcomes its young audience.

museum gugging views itself as a part of the rich history of the Art Brut Center Gugging. The location in Maria Gugging, the connection with the Art Brut Center and the close proximity to the Gugging Artists are important facets that contribute to the unique character of this house.
