The Artothek des Bundes collects, administers, and cares for artworks acquired by the Austrian state since 1948 in order to promote art. It thus provides a thorough documentation of modern and contemporary Austrian art. There are currently over 37,000 works in the collection, including many early works by now-established artists, as well as very recent positions. The collection is being constantly expanded and updated with artworks acquired by the ministry. Objects from the Artothek are loaned to decorate governmental offices both in Austria and abroad. In addition, some works are presented to the public at exhibitions or are on permanent loan to Austrian museums.
