Admont in Styria
With the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Admont monastery created a modern framework for works by over 100 artists, compiled thematically on changing special exhibitions. In addition to the ongoing acquisition activity, the Artists-in-Residence programme invites artists from younger and middle generations into the monastery and to create site-specific works of art. Objects that result from the creativity of the artists in residence are labelled "Made for Admont" in the monastery collection. For this exemplary combination of high-level modern art with ancient heritage, the Admont monastery was awarded the “2005 Austrian Museum Prize".
