The arts make an important contribution to our quality of life, which is why DSM actively seeks to promote the arts in a variety of ways. The DSM Art Collection consists of various works of contemporary art that DSM has purchased over the years. DSM also hosts exhibitions within various DSM office locations and sponsors the Biennial Award for Contemporary Art (BACA) and the Foundation Made in Mirrors.
We have been building a DSM Art Collection for more than a century and are a member of the Dutch Association for Corporate Art Collections. We also sponsor a major Dutch award for international visual art to support contemporary artists, and we are a partner in an international cultural exchange program.
Dutch Art association
The Dutch Association for Corporate Art Collections is a partnership between a large number of Dutch-based businesses, organizations and institutions that, besides their core activities, collect art. DSM has been a member of this influential association since its foundation in 2005.
Sponsor of the Biennial Award for Contemporary Art
DSM sponsors the Biennial Award for Contemporary Art (BACA) – the leading award for international visual art in the Netherlands. The award is intended as a tribute to an artist for his or her daring oeuvre and visible influence on other (younger) artists.
In November 2010, the BACA International 2010 was presented to Francis Al˙s, a ‘visual poet’ and artist. Al˙s’ work consists of photos, videos, films, and painted works on paper and canvas. A remarkable feature of his work is that he regularly commissions others to execute his works.
DSM is a partner in the international cultural exchange program Made in Mirrors. This long-term international cooperative venture was started in 2007 and is dedicated to promoting cooperation between culturally diverse partners by encouraging and enabling the small-scale exchange of creative people (including artists, writers, musicians, architects and philosophers) and their ideas. The Made in Mirrors Foundation is an initiative involving partners in the Netherlands, Brazil, China and Egypt.
