"At ARKEN we want our museum to be utilised by as many people as possible and we wish to enter into a dialogue with our users. Therefore we strive for the highest expertise and professionalism in all matters.
The museum visitors' encounter with the art is our main concern. That is why our exhibitions are realised so that the insights into life that art offers can be understood by as many people as possible. The aim of the exhibition must be clear to all our visitors because we want our guests always to leave with something to reflect upon.
This applies even when the messages about life that art sends us are not the most cheerful or optimistic. These are serious matters we deal with at ARKEN because life is serious.
We have no doubt that man can learn from the messages found in art. We deliberately strive to explore and shed light on the conditions under which people live today. And we utilise art to explore, define, comment and criticise these conditions.
That is why we will never compromise the quality of what we do. High quality in exhibitions, in communicating them to the public, and in the general service at the museum, is the only way we can really express our respect for ARKEN’s guests."
