Museion - Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

On May 24, 2008 Museion, the museum of modern and contemporary art in Bolzano, Italy, opened its new building. Bolzano is the biggest urban centre in the vicinity of a popular skiing resort Val Gardena. It is, however, a prominent cultural destination too, not only a stopover to snowy slopes. The museum, designed by the Berlin based architectural studio KSV (Krüger, Schuberth and Vandreike), is described as a building "open to all who are interested". It is created in close interaction with its environmental setting, playing with it and changing its panorama. Both transparent façades of the building expose the very soul of this new „organism", at the same time merging it with the historic centre of the town, on the one hand, and meadows across the Talvera River, on the other. While at night, the same façades turn into fascinating surfaces for the projections of newly acquired artworks.
Even though May 24 is set to be the inauguration day, Bolzano modern art museum, sited in a former hospital, first opened its doors in 1985. At that time, its focus of interest was artistic expressions of the particular region. In the beginning of the 90s it presented Italian and German art, represented by such names as Lucio Fontana, Gerhard Richter and others. At the same time the museum took the name of Museion, broadening its field of activity and revealing an interdisciplinary nature of contemporary art.
In the year 2000, Museion became the Museum of modern and contemporary art with its mission to reflect multiform expressions of art of today.
