Moco Museum Barcelona

Modern and contemporary art in Barcelona

The Modern & Contemorary Museum, Moco Museum for short, is one of the youngest museums in Barcelona and a real enrichment for the cultural life in the metropolis. In the middle of the difficult time of the Corona Pandemic, the Moco was opened on October 16, 2021. One of Spain's most visited museums, the Picasso Museum, is right next door; the Meam Museum is just a few steps away. The Borne district is developing into a real museum district.

The Moco Museum

The Moco Museums Barcelona and Amsterdam came about as a private initiative of the art patrons Lionel & Kim Logchies. Some of the works shown are on loan from an international network of art lovers and collectors. The main exhibition is modern and contemporary art, which is shown in cross-thematic collections and individual exhibitions on specific themes.

It is reflected in the Moco's art collection: the museum's philanthropic support for several charities such as the Movement On The Ground, an AIDS fund, The Metakids and the Earth Today organization. A portion of the proceeds from the Moco Museum will be donated to charities close to the hearts of the initiators.

  • Banksy
    The most famous street performer is elusive. Nobody knowshis real name, where he come from, or how old he is. It is believed that he was born around 1974 in Bristol, England. At the end of the 1990s, the stencil artist became world famous with his provocative works. The exhibition is a tribute to one of the greatest artists of our time.

The world public has embraced this new art medium.
  • NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens)
    Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) record ownership of digital items. In detail, these are unique pieces and rarities that cannot be easily reproduced. Although anyone can view or download them, only the buyer can claim ownership. NFTs are changing the way we buy some things. Now this is the future of digital art!

The palace

From the Middle Ages to the 20th century, the street Montcade was reserved for aristocrats, wealthy merchants and kings. Palace after palace. Many are still preserved today and house museums and other public institutions. The Moco Museum Barcelona has found its home in Palacio Cervelló, the private residence of the Cervelló noble family.

The palace was built in the 16th century and used parts of a 15th century palace. The Cervelló family resided here until the 18th century, when the building was sold to the Giudice family, an important line of Genoese merchants.
