What to expect

Visit: Moco Museum Amsterdam, (Museumplein) Honthorststraat 20 next to Van Gogh Museum, 1071 DE Amsterdam The Netherlands

The Moco Museum is located in Villa Alsberg in the middle of the Amsterdam's Museumplein. This townhouse was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, cousin of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who was responsible for the Rijksmuseum, which is on the opposite side of the square. The restyling of all the quarters was done by Studio Piet Boon.

Enjoy the current following exhibitions during your visit to the Moco Museum:

Banksy: Laugh Now

On the ground floor you will find the elaborate Banksy “Laugh Now” exhibition. The exhibition contains around 50 original works by Street Art-legend Banksy. For the first time in history there is a Banksy exhibition in a museum.

Moco museum is displaying all his famous works like Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Pulp Fiction, Flower Thrower, Monkey Queen, Kate Moss, Bomb Hugger, Soup Can and many more.The main piece during this exhibition is the painting “Beanfield”, which is 2, 5 x 3, 5 meters. This piece has not been on display since 2009. A very important canvas that characterizes Banksy as an activist artist. Banksy is well known for his outdoor art. You can find his pieces of street art all around the world. In London you can even buy maps marking the locations where you can find these pieces of art, which are mostly protected. Not everyone knows that Banksy also makes art for indoors. Original and unique works on canvas, wood and paper.

ICY & SOT: A moment of Clarity 

The fact that the young Iranian brothers Icy (34) and Sot (29) are called the ‘Banksy of Iran’ is clear. In their own country, their work is not only considered controversial, it is even banned. Not withstanding, the work of these street artists literally holds a mirror to the current Iranian society. With their work they offer an idiosyncratic view on themes like oppression, fame, freedom, war and dreams. The talent of the brothers did not go unnoticed and soon Icy and Sot got the chance to leave the streets of Tabriz tempted by New York.

Admiration among art lovers increased even more in The Big Apple. Success seemed assured, but not without sacrifice: By embracing their success in America, returning to their native country became impossible.

We now know that Icy and Sot did not give up their future in their native country in vain. The duo currently holds several exhibitions in New York and are working hard to gain international success. Just recently (February 6, 2018) the two were the subject of discussion thanks to a playful action on Wall Street. By placing a gigantic crumpled dollar bill in the middle of New York’s financial district, the two opposed greed and the volatility of capitalism.

Great exhibition of artwork in a small museum. Banksy work was great to see. Loved the explanation and description that went with the pieces of art. Small museum but lots packed in.

The art is magnificent. But Moco pays its retail staff 7 euro per hour. This is rank exploitation. Moco should be very ashamed!!!

Loved the variety of artists that this exhibition was showcasing. I had some time to kill and went solo and loved the digital immersive experience. A great selection of modern art, will definitely go back!

I did not plan on visiting the museum until I saw it advertised in tbe airport. The museum is so worth it, it's a smaller museum, the building is an old house - mansion- and all the artwork is well placed and organized ext well. It's graffiti style and socially conscious, street style modern art...

This is by far the best place to go to if you want to see banksy. The art work is well presented in the most beautiful building.
