The MuseumsQuartier Wien is a cultural megalopolis, a touristic hot spot, leisure play yard and a place for myriad events. In addition the MuseumsQuartier, which emerged from the former royal stables and the later exhibition halls, offers a specific topography regarding public space with its theme passages, courtyards and hidden corners. Exploring this area, one discovers a complex as well as significant maze that is continuously re-arranged and cultivated by artists and curators.

The “Passages”- book of the MuseumsQuartier Wien is a guideline and conveys information for receptive audience and readers. The accompanying texts establish a manual on theory and historic developments that gives orientation, association and leads into the context of the museum.
