The Museum Of Young Art (MOYA) founded 2005[1][2] in Vienna, Austria, was the first museum[3][4] worldwide exclusively devoted to 21st-century young art.[5] The MOYA was privately owned, founded & owned by the Swiss and German art historian and art manager Dr. Kolja Kramer. It presented artworks produced after the year 2000 only and it focussed especially on the early work of artists. Artists also did not necessarily have to be fully established. A risk with regard to long term art historical relevance was taken for the sake of art historical speculation. The MOYA also functioned as a springboard for many young artists. In 2015 the MOYA-Museum of Young Art in Vienna was closed. The transfer of the MOYA-Museum of Young Art outside Austria is planned at present. Further Information:

The first location of the MOYA was right at the famous Vienna Ring Road, next to Vienna`s Burgtheater and the Rathaus, Vienna, in Löwelstrasse 20, 1010 Vienna. In 2010 it moved to a larger city palace nearby, to Palais Schönborn-Batthyány at the Freyung, built by the important baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, in the heart of Vienna, Renngasse 4, 1010 Vienna.

Represented countries[edit]

In the MOYA Mainly contemporary young European art was presented even though there was a concentration on regional art from Vienna and Austria and its neighbouring countries. The MOYA functioned as a gate the east with its many exhibitions and artists from Eastern Europe. The annual show `Young Art Global´[6] regularly put the regional context in a broader spatialtemporal perspective with international artists from all over the world. The MOYA was closely related to the diplomatic circle in Vienna and collaborated with cultural institutes and international art institutions in the countries. In 2014 the MOYA received the Flame of Peace,[7] an award given by members of the Habsburg family for contributions to world peace.[8]
