About Moco Amsterdam

The Moco Museum was founded by Lionel and Kim Logchies, art collectors and entrepreneurs. They wanted to create a space in Amsterdam that would present a dynamic range of modern and contemporary art, aimed at a younger and more urban audience. Moco has quickly become a leading destination to discover modern and contemporary art in a dynamic and engaging environment.
