Volkswagen and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as well as MoMA PS1 are entering into a comprehensive partnership lasting several years. The development of an international exhibition of contemporary art is at the centre of the partnership. Other pillars are expansion of the MoMA online education programme, a gift of two works of art from Francis Alÿs and sponsoring several art installations in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. To MoMA and MoMA PS1, this cooperation with Volkswagen is the first comprehensive partnership that the reputable New York museum has entered into with a company.
The fundamental company values of Volkswagen include creating the greatest possible access to innovations and specifically taking responsibility for the environment and society. With the "Think Blue." initiative, the company is standing up for sustainable actions in all areas of life. The cooperation with MoMA is now part of this context. A new and thrilling impetus will be imparted to the open dialogue between art, science and society.
