And contribute to the valorisation of the research works of the Bibliothèque Kandinsky
The Bibliothèque Kandinsky is the centre for documentation and research of the Musée National d'Art Moderne. It conserves significant archival and documentary collections regarding the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and makes it available to a specialised public.
It contributes to projects in the art and heritage sciences that support the museum’s scientific and professional teams in their research and works to showcase and enhance the collections and documentary collections.
In 2019, the Friends of the Centre Pompidou decided to support research projects showcasing knowledge dissemination, in favour of scientific research in art history at the Bibliothèque Kandinsky and in the heart of the museum.
Each year, one to three research grants are funded allowing young researchers to accomplish a research mission, under the direction of a curator, through field studies, archival studies, and conducting interviews or original translations.
By supporting research within Mission Recherche the members enjoy a richly diverse and exclusive programme of cultural visits and excursions in France and abroad. These represent all kinds of privileged moments to meet with the stakeholders of the world of modern and contemporary art.
Donations put towards research projects are 66% tax deductible.
