The Hubert Looser Collection fits perfectly into the broad coverage of major strands in modern European and American art that the Kunsthaus seeks to achieve. A cooperation that was renewed in 2018 guarantees that 75 paintings, sculptures, installations and drawings will remain for 20 years in the Kunsthaus extension, which is scheduled for completion in 2020. The current temporary presentation, which was previously shown in Krems, offers an inspiring foretaste of the coming encounters between this private collection and the public collection of the Kunsthaus.
