For Wurm, [..], anything can become sculpture: actions, written or drawn instructions, or even a thought. His art often treats elementary as well as banal life needs and actions, as well as their perversion, as can be expressed in physical deformations. (source: MUMOK)

Wurm's most recent work is the object "House attack", installed on MUMOK's external façade: the single family house as a symbol of the everyday plunge into the façade of the museum.

The installation is accompanied by the exhibition "Keep a Cool Head", by Erwin Wurm (Opening: 19 October, 2006 - 7.00 p.m.).

Finally, the architecturally boring MuseumsQuartier (by Ortner & Ortner) has got a landmark.
