Move through time – the long corridor is a timeline

The long walkway extending through the building acts like a kind of timeline. As you move through the large exhibition rooms facing the Østre Anlæg park you also move chronologically through a sequence of art from the early 20th century to the present day.

Overview and focus

The large exhibition rooms on one side of the walkway offers visitors the chance to orient themselves and get an overview of art from the early 20th century to the present day. Each room presents a specific period.  The smaller rooms on the other side of the corridor also follow the overall chronological order, but their focus is aimed elsewhere: they offer visitors the opportunity to focus on tendencies, groupings, artists or particular issues.
