No, Auntie’s Em’s house from The Wizard of Oz didn’t get caught up in a twister and smash into MUMOK (Vienna’s Museum of Modern Art); the above piece, titled “House Attack,” is the work of Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm. The suburban house was placed on top of the building to commemorate a Wurm exhibition that opened in 2006.
It’s worth noting that MUMOK is no stranger to urban pranking. Last September, the museum’s pavilion was the site of Improv Everywhere’s Vienna Mp3 Experiment.

art director willi dorner and photographer lisa rastl have collaborated on two project combining humans in odd formations and unusual locations. ‘hängende gärten’ and ‘bodies in urban spaces’ both set out to explore the “relationship between body, space and architecture”. the urban based series was created as a set of human sculptures which were spread throughout the city of vienna. the artist has effectively transformed the human body into form, a complete reversal from the classical convention of creating the human form from a material.
