Moco Museum


moco museum sign entranceThe Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum in Amsterdam houses a collection of artwork by unparalleled artists from the past century. Within three stories of floor-to-ceiling creations, the gallery is located right on the Museumplein. The Alsberg townhouse where the museum has found a residence, built in 1904, creates a nice backdrop for the artists it showcases. 

Note: Some of the exhibits on this page may not be available at the time you’re visiting Amsterdam. We will try to update the page as soon as we hear of a new exhibit.

Banksy – Laugh Now (Until April 1, 2020):

Moco prides itself on being one of the largest 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.

Moco Masters (Permanent Collection):

This permanent collection to the museum showcases the talent of the leading artists of the 20th century. Shown here are the creations of Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Keith Haring, among other influential artists. The collection pieces together current brands to show the artists’ relevance in today’s society, proving that they are truly the masters of modern art. 

Daniel Arsham – Amethyst Ball Cavern (2020):

The New York-based creator Daniel Arsham returns to Moco Museum after his 2019 exhibit, Connecting Time. Arsham’s use of architecture, film, and sculpture to create a thought-provoking, new experience sets him apart from other artists. The alternating realities and, perhaps, mind-bending sights allow the visitor an inside look into the mind of the artist. The current installation is a room of surrounding purple, fluorescent sculptures.

Loved the Daniel Arsham Expo

‘Connecting Time’ by Daniel Arsham at Moco Museum was an incredible exhibition and experience. My visit to Moco Museum in Amsterdam was unlike any other museum experience. Go see for yourself!
