The Modern Contemporary Museum in Amsterdam, also known as Moco Museum, houses a collection of artwork by unparalleled artists from the past century. Within three stories of floor-to-ceiling creations, the Moco Museum is located right on the Museumplein where it lies next to the world famous Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum. The Alsberg townhouse where the Moco Museum has found a residence, built in 1904, creates a nice backdrop for the artists it showcases.

Moco Museum Amsterdam: permanent collection

The Moco Museum offers a wide range of contemporary arts. As Moco is based in Barcelona and Amsterdam, the museum has lots of exhibitions. In Amsterdam you will find two permanent collections: Banksy – Laugh now and Moco Masters.

Banksy – Laugh Now (Permanent Collection):

Moco Museum Amsterdam prides itself on showing one of the largest permanent collections of Banksy’s artwork, with over 90 original pieces within its walls. Banksy began his career as a street artist whose appeal, other than his obvious artistic ability, is largely credited to the surrounding mystery of who is behind the spray can. From his beginnings on the streets of London in the 1990s, Banksy has since created groundbreaking and inspirational art in the form of sculptures and political pieces. His work has become so popular among mainstream media that chances are high visitors have seen it somewhere, maybe even on buildings put there by the artist himself! Banksy’s canvas works, sculptures, and even graffiti rescued from torn-down buildings can be seen at Moco. In the Banksy Moco Museum you will find famous artworks like: Laugh Now, Girl with Balloon, Flower Thrower, Smiling Copper and the Crude Oil-series.
