A Comprehensive Partnership.
Volkswagen and MoMA.

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.

Artists Give us Food for Thought

Dr. Martin Winterkorn is looking forward to the impetus that will come from the multi-year partnership: "Artists give us food for thought and allow us to view the world from new perspectives. MoMA is one of the world's leading institutions in the field of contemporary art. With its convincing expertise and its education mandate, it is our partner of choice. This partnership is an expression of our corporate self-image of taking responsibility for the environment and society."

"We are happy to have found a powerful partner in Volkswagen. With its focus on innovation and education, it goes well with the values of MoMA," says Glenn D., Lowry, Director of the Museum of Modern Art. "This partnership makes it possible for MoMA and MoMA PS1 to realise long-term goals as well as ambitious exhibitions and projects."
