The Great Museum

Friday, April 24 - Thursday, April 30, 2015

Featuring unprecedented access to an influential and multifaceted institution, THE GREAT MUSEUM reveals the inner-workings of Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum, one of the most important art institutions in the world.

Widely known as the art palace that houses paintings by Rembrandt, Diego Velásquez, Pieter Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens and Caravaggio, among many other canonical works, the museum also features a remarkable and magnetic group of employees – here shown with equal honesty and sensibility.

As the camera follows the spacious rooms hosting some of the world’s most valuable art works, director Johannes Holzhausen reveals a dynamic, reflective and fast-moving institution that’s both adapting to the marketing and funding realities of the 21st-century while remaining faithful to its core mission.
