Shylock is a fictional character in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. A Venetian Jewish moneylender, Shylock is the play’s principal antagonist. His defeat and his conversion to Christianity forms the climax of the story.
Typically played as a villain until the nineteenth century, Shylock has been increasingly portrayed as a semi-tragic figure whose vengeful acts arise from his victimisation.
A moneylender is a person or group who offers small personal loans at high rates of interest.The high interest rates charged by them is justified in many cases by the risk involved.
They play an active role in lending to people with less access to banking activities, such as the unbanked or underbanked or in situations where borrowers do not have good credit history. They sometimes lend to people like gamblers and compulsive shoppers who often get into debt.
Many countries have laws in place that requires money lenders to be registered and limits on the interest rates that may be charged.

Not Vital – Schlafendes Haus (Sleeping House), 2009
Permanent loan on the forecort of the MdM Mönchsberg
Originally conceived as a temporary installation within the framework of "Art in Public Space Vienna", Swiss artist Not Vital created the tenmeter-high mobile steel sculpture "Schlafendes Haus" (Sleeping House)", which gets up in the morning and goes to sleep in the evening like a human being, for the public space of Kunsthalle Wien.

The puristic building of the MdM MÖNCHSBERG and the medieval-looking water tower are a distinctive though unequal pair that has become a dominant feature of the cityscape of Salzburg. For many years the MdM SALZBURG has tried to raise the financial means for the restoration and adaptation of the water tower on Mönchsberg – unfortunately the project had to be postponed repeatedly for a lack of funds from sponsors or public authorities.
The additional space provided by the water tower is intended to be used for art education and mediation programmes and an artist studio to alleviate the scarcity of space at the MdM SALZBURG and to meet state-of-the-art requirements for modern art mediation with a high pedagogical value.
The restoration of the work Litzlberg am Attersee (1914/1915) by Gustav Klimt to its rightful heir Georges Jorisch finally provided a chance for the restoration of the water tower: In recognition of the cooperation of the provincial government of Salzburg and the personal efforts of MdM Director Toni Stooss for a swift and unbureaucratic restoration of the work, George Jorisch, a Canadian citizen, showed his appreciation by generously donating 1.3 mio euros for the restoration and conversion of the water tower.
After completion of the building works in March 2014, the water tower will be named Amalie Redlich after the original owner of Klimt’s painting Litzlberg am Attersee. Apart from rooms for workshops for more than 4000 children and adolescents per year, the new water tower will also feature a studio for an "artist in residence". As the museum still lacks the financing for technical equipment and furniture, the Society of Friends and Promoters of the MdM SALZBURG has started a fund-raising campaign to raise the necessary funds.
