The Modern Contemporary Museum Amsterdam (Moco) is located inside Villa Alsberg, a townhouse that dates back to 1904, bang in the heart of Amsterdam’s Museumplein. See more than 50 original Banksys next to works by other artworld trailblazers like Kusama, Roy Lichtenstein, Dali, and more! The museum also features ever-revolving exhibitions
Banksy: Laugh Now is the first Banksy exhibition to be shown in an institutionalized art venue. Moco doesn’t claim to have Banksy’s endorsement, yet, it presents a rare chance for a glimpse at his artwork. This includes Beanfield, which before this, hadn’t been displayed anywhere since 2009.
Famed street art pieces like the Laugh Now series, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, and Love Is In The Air (Flower Thrower) are all here. You can also see Banksy’s confronting indoor works you may not have seen before, juxtaposed against the classic, conservative style of the elegant townhouse.
Some works were rescued from the rubble of demolished buildings, which gives you an idea of how valuable they are!
