Moco Museum Barcelona, the most fashionable contemporary art

At the end of the year 2021 in the Born district of Barcelona the Dutch fashion couple, Kim and Lionel Logchies, opened their second MOCO museum - whose name comes from Modern and Contemporary - after their acclaimed gallery in Amsterdam. This time in Barcelona, they open the doors for all art lovers, their incredible collection and pieces borrowed from the world's leading artists: Dali, Bansky, Warhol, Basquiat, Haring or Murakami. 

The museum reflects the same concept that gave them success in Amsterdam, a disruptive and different museum for all audiences. The idea was born thanks to Kim's passion for contemporary art, and for the modern art of his partner, Lionel, and his passion for the 'big names', as he describes himself.  

We invite you to enjoy this incredible setting and stay in our magnificent Grand Hotel Central perfect for art lovers, located in the heart of the characteristic Born neighborhood and just 5 minutes walk from the MOCO Museum Barcelona.

The future: Digital immersive art

Although we find renowned artists in the MOCO Museum Barcelona, the block that has attracted the most attention in social networks has been the immersive world of digital art. This is possible thanks to the popular collective Team Lab, which creates digital pieces to live an experience with all 5 senses. And is that the Team Labs team has created an optical illusion of infinite diamonds perfect for any Instagram story, an ideal attraction for young people in Barcelona. 

Finally, a small final room dedicated to the famous NFT (non fungible tokens) with collaborations such as Beeple, the most famous author of these pieces of art that recently sold a work valued at 57 million. This small section is the first digital art room to be seen in Europe.
