With its nearly 90 years of history and almost 200.000 works of artists such as Van Gogh, Pollock, Mondrian, Magritte, Monet, Picasso, the Museum of Modern Art of New York, better known as MoMa, is one of the most important museum institutions of the world, certainly the most famous among those dedicated to modern art.

After having digitized and put online more than 76,000 pieces and made available images of almost all the exhibitions organized from 1929 to today, MoMa has also recently launched a web series entitled "At the Museum" that shows us what happens behind the scenes.

The first episode was published on YouTube last October 27th, with new episodes released every Friday through December 22, 2017.

There is an incredible job, invisible to visitors, behind the organization of a museum: temporary exibitions to be set up and dismantled, new exibitions to plan, permanent collection to be enhanced, artworks to restore, walls that need painting, and so forth.

Have the chance to take a look at the "backstage" and discover the gears that move this huge machine, which is certainly not a common experience.

 

 

Here the updated playlist of the videos!
