Museum of Perception MUWA

The Museum of Perception MUWA, founded by Werner Wolf in 1990, shows works of contemporary constructive, reductive art by established but also young artists, architecture and science in changing exhibitions parallel to the permanent exhibition of mainly visual perception installations.

The MUWA offers an extensive education programme and cooperates with artistic, pedagogical and university institutions on a regional, national and international level as well as their representatives within the framework of workshops, further education, lectures, readings, discourse events or concerts of contemporary music. All tasks related to the MUWA are documented and continuously published.
Visitors can use the reference library of art books and catalogues with a focus on reductive art. In the basement, the Samadhi bath, a deprivation tank for deep relaxation is available to those who are interested.

ROLAND GOESCHL “Farbe muss Material werden”

Do not color, color has to become material - with this statement ROLAND GOESCHL (1932-2016), one of the most important representatives of the Austrian avant-garde after of the Austrian avant-garde after 1945, defined his artistic approach. With the further development from autonomous, figurative sculpture towards the dissolution of the hierarchy of form, color and material he created a precise and dynamic interplay between color, surface and material on the surface and in his sculptural works, dynamic interplay between color, surface and space - through the consistent use of the primary use of the primary colors red, blue and yellow.

This was followed by stays in Berlin, London and Paris as well as participation in the documenta in Kassel, the 34th Venice Biennale with Josef Mikl and steirischer herbst. From 1972 until his retirement in 2000, he headed the Institute for Drawing and Painting at the Vienna University of Technology.

Among his public art projects are the installation of the work "Sackgasse" as part of trigon 67 in Graz, a now-destroyed façade design on Färberplatz in Graz from 1979 and the 12-metre-high sculpture-column formation and the mural "Flächensprung" from 1988 on the building of the Vienna University of Technology.

How and with what would Fröbel design today? Friedrich Fröbel (1782-1852) shaped pedagogy worldwide with his invention of the kindergarten and pioneering ideas for the artistic education of children. On the upper floor of the MUWA, historical exhibits from the DIPF from Fröbel's kindergarten teacher training are presented on the subject of weaving, which in their complexity and simplicity are an early anticipation of experimentation with constructive forms. These are flanked by current implementations of the FRÖBELmobil from work with children.
