Andy Warhol Hometown

On the footsteps of Andy Warhol

We visit the Warhol Family Museum of Modern Art in the artist’s hometown, Medzilaborce, in the far north-east of Slovakia (yes, Warhol was born Andrej Warhola and was of European origin!) and we discover why this massive concrete edifice, built among hills dotted with wooden houses in the country’s backyard could be awarded the title of the most fascinating and unexpectedly surrealistic museum in Europe.

Besides being the only Warhol museum in the continent, it’s the second largest of its kind worldwide! What makes the visit so intriguing is not only its rich and well-curated exhibits, such as original works and replicas, memorabilia, photos, letters, drawings and various objects. What is unforgettable is the mix of grandeur and decay, of rural charm and avant-guard spirit.
