We Are Moco
The Moco Museum focuses on proven artists who have their own vision.
The Moco museum in Amsterdam is a boutique museum with a wide range of modern, inspiring and contemporary art that we show to the public. The competition comes nowhere near it. Think of the artists: Banksy, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. These artists use a lot of irony towards modern society, that is what makes them so special. Moco provides inspiration and eye openers for all the visitors. With this, Moco speaks to a wide audience. Visitors who come to the Moco museum will experience art that is nowhere to be seen but here.
Banksy. Many people ask themselves who is Banksy? Banksy is a British artist who mostly creates streetart. Banksy started as a graffiti artist and his works are often humorous and political. Some of his street works are shown in the Moco Museum, but the exhibition contains mostly of Banksy’s indoor artworks. Real pieces. Also his canvas works are displayed at the Moco. There is a huge canvas piece of the famous painting: ‘beanfield’. This beautiful piece is shown on the ground floor. A huge eye-catcher as you enter the exhibition of Banksy. Furthermore, ‘the girl with Balloon’, ‘Laugh now and’ ‘keep it real’ are real highlights of the collection. The beautiful Banksy collection at Moco Museum. Come check it out ..
Daniel Arsham. Arsham’s work is full of the unexpected: solid surfaces appear to bend and buckle, high-tech equipment looks like it’s existed for thousands of years. Unexpected is just how Arsham likes it; he challenges our perceptions of the physical world and what is possible within. Arsham seems to enjoy a paradoxical, sometimes dystopian, view of the past, present and future.
Entering the installation spaces of this exhibition, such as Amethyst Ball Cavern, feels like stepping into an alternate reality. The artist’s fascination with pop culture objects, sports and the influence of archeology are apparent in these spaces.
The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum is situated in Villa Alsberg, a townhouse overlooking Museumplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The building was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, nephew of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who designed Amsterdam’s Central Station and the Rijksmuseum, which is at the opposite end of the square. This privately-owned residence was one of the first family homes built along Museumplein and retained this function until 1939. Subsequently, the house was let to priests who taught at the Saint Nicolas school in Amsterdam, and later it was converted into an office for a law firm.
The appearance of this mansion is breathtaking, no effort is spared to ensure that this authentic appearance is perfectly made, making your visit to the Banksy exhibition and other exhibitions even greater. The building is charming but because of the compact size it can feel crowdy.
Moco Museum (Prins Museum BV) is a private museum co-owned by Lionel Logchies and Kim Logchies – Prins who make up the management of the museum.
In addition, there is a large group of enthusiastic employees working either in executive office functions, as a host/hostess in the museum or in the shop.
