50 years ago, namely on June 6, 1970, the Hanak Museum (today LANGENZERSDORF MUSEUM, in short "LEMU") was opened in the former bottling hall of the "Champagnerkeller" in the Obere Kirchengasse 23. Starting with the presentation of the artistic estate of Anton Hanak, who had lived in Langenzersdorf for over 20 years, the museum was able to establish itself as a museum for modern and contemporary Austrian sculpture through donations and collecting activities as well as through spatial expansions. The LANGENZERSDORF MUSEUM takes its 50th anniversary as an opportunity to present in the exhibition "Treasures of Modern Art - 50 Years of LEMU" sculptures, graphics and paintings by the sculptors Anton Hanak, Siegfried Charoux, Fritz Wotruba, Egon Weiner, Gottfried Buchberger, Alois Heidel, Alfred Czerny and others that have never been shown before or have not been exhibited for a long time. For the first time, works from Siegfried Charoux's private art collection (including works by Rudolf von Alt, Broncia Koller-Pinell, Carl Kress, Franzvon Zülow, Marc Chagall, Robin Christian Andersen) will also be shown.
