The Heidi Horten Collection

The Building and Its History

The history and redevelopment of the building housing the Heidi Horten Collection.

In early 2022, the Heidi Horton Collection opened in the heart of Vienna. For its first book, the Collection decided to showcase the creation of this new exhibition venue, its architecture, and its construction history, positioning it within the context of the foundation of new museums. Heidi Goëss-Horten’s art collection has been carefully cultivated since the early 1990s and focuses mainly on works of international modernism, Neo-Expressionism, and American Pop-Art. This richly illustrated book examines the previous historical buildings on the space where the museum now stands, their princely clients, the current redesign, and the conversion of a former secular residential outbuilding into a contemporary art museum. An interview with Heidi Goëss-Horten rounds out the book, allowing the collector and patron to introduce herself and provide fascinating insights into a prestigious European private collection.
