The last great stocktaking of the Collection in 2013 coincided with the tenth anniversary of the Lentos ’s foundation. Since then a number of works of art have been acquired – time for the presentation of the new arrivals.
For the latest acquisitions the focus has been on photography, painting, drawing and sculpture. The bulk of these works is by artists of the young generation. Together they provide an overview of the themes and formal concerns of contemporary art. Purchases and donations provide a record of the exhibition history of the the museum.
