Abstrakt

The dissertation’s original contribution to research can roughly be defined as three-fold: (1) It defines this group of privately founded collection museums of modernist art, their characteristics and an original, well-grounded methodology to analyse them; (2) the dissertation gives the first comparative study of Ordrupgaard and interprets a large amount of relatively unknown material about the museum and the history of collecting modernist art in Denmark; (3) modernist art collecting is explained as performative: collecting seeks to generate meaning through display and it happens through networks.
