“It is with gratitude that I received this information. This funding will make a great difference to the current situation with regard to Moderna Museet’s assignment to collect and share contemporary and modern art,” says Gitte Ørskou. “All of us at Moderna Museet are deeply committed to promoting and stimulating the development of art, and this money now enables us to make several new acquisitions. The Moderna Museet collection belongs to the Swedish people, and therefore it is especially gratifying that we can now buy several works – for all our citizens – at a time when art is needed more than ever.”
