Founded in August 2011, MoNTUE is a premium education supplementary department in the National Taipei University of Education (NTUE). During the Japanese occupation, the school fostered many artists, and considered a founding cradle for the modern art of Taiwan. The MoNTUE deliberately keeps its Chinese title reflecting its days as a normal college. The acronym of “MoNTUE” is interpreted as putting together the first letters of Monday and Tuesday. It signifies that week by week a hundred years of history was shaped. The museum fosters to the both essences of heritage and innovation with its one-hundred-year history. Through time, it will only grow to be better.
