Description:

The collection presented by MS and MS2 focuses mainly on the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is exceptional, because it was created by artists themselves who donated their work to the future museum. It should be emphasised that the institution is one of the oldest museums of contemporary art in the world. The collections include the work of such artists as Fernand Léger, MaxErnst, Leon Chwistek, Tytus Czyżewski, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz  - representatives of cubism, surrealism and formism, the "pure form" trend.  The core of the collections constitutes the work of the world famous group "a.r." -  – Władysław Strzemiński, Katarzyna Kobro and  Henryk Stażewski. It was their idea to obtain pieces of art from artists and to create a collection. Other artists whose work is exhibited by the museum include Jankiel Adler, Le Corbusier, Pablo Picasso, Victor Vasarely, Roman Opałka, Mirosław Bałka, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Tadeusz Kantor, Joseph Beuys and many others.
