Research – a special obligation

As the only art museum coming under the provisions of the Act on Research at Archives, Libraries, Museums etc. the National Gallery of Denmark naturally takes up a central position in Danish art-historical research.

All research at the National Gallery of Denmark must have the collections as its starting point or be connected with the works or activities of the museum. Research within Danish art should take into account the degree to which individual projects may show Danish art in an international perspective and focus on less obvious, but important aspects of Danish art history.

Research projects should be made visible to the visitors through publications, exhibitions, new displays or acquisitions. You can read about ongoing and scheduled research projects here.
