This collection includes various categories, ranging from artists’ books to single objects. It is available for consultation after prior reservation and approval by the museum’s management team. This is a unique collection in Portugal and is considered to be one of the most important aspects of the Museum’s overall collection. In fact, as the Museum’s collection represents a selection of works by international artists created from the mid-1960s to the present day, it is essential that artists’ books be represented in this collection, since they represent one of the freest and most singular experiences of a constantly-changing aesthetic context.
