A stone’s throw from Marienplatz, the “Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA)” open its doors in a former substation on nearly 2,000 square meters. The façade of the MUCA was designed by the renowned street artist Stohead, thus becoming the art object itself. The museum visitor enters the building through a calligraphically designed “envelope”. The MUCA wants to create a connecting element between the interior and exterior space. This connection is important to us as it is intended to convey to the visitor that street art as an art form needs the public space as a discussion space. The interior space is a kind of protection and experimentation area.
The museum-shop is created by the artists duo Layercake (aka Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark) from Munich.
