Collection for Contemporary Art

The still young collection is continually being developed and supplemented, whether through the acquisition of works by the exhibiting artists of the Foundation’s program or through annual endowments.

Special consideration is given to works that contribute to broadening the perspectives represented in the collection. Particular emphasis is placed on the gender equality of artists and on works and artists that contribute to offer a non-European perspective.

Works from the collection can be borrowed for external exhibitions and are occasionally on view in the Foundation’s exhibitions and in the Foundation’s office.
