The Great Museum

Life among the treasures of one of the largest museums in art history
An in-depth look at daily life at one of the most famous cultural institutions in the world, The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
Featuring unprecedented access to an influential and multi-faceted 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 Velasquez, Pieter Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens and Caravaggio, among many other canonical works, the museum also features a remarkable and magnetic group of dedicated employees. 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.

Media reception

The Guardian
"A pleasing, high-minded film.“
The Slant Magazine
"The ghostliness of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna derives from an identity crisis, where digitization threatens to eradicate the gallery space.“
