Swedens complete database of art

Moderna Museet

Moderna Museet, Sweden, deposited a copy of its entire art database of 140,000 pieces, along with the descriptions and images. ‘We have a world-class collection of modern and contemporary art, and we are deeply convinced that art says a lot about the world it was created in and the people who created it. We want future humanity to get an idea of who we were, by seeing the art we created today,’ says Gitte Ørskou, director of Moderna Museet.
