L'Internationale is a confederation of seven modern and contemporary art institutions which proposes a space for art within a non-hierarchical and decentralised internationalism, based on the values of difference and horizontal exchange among a constellation of cultural agents, locally rooted and globally connected.

L'Internationale brings together seven major European art institutions: Moderna galerija (MG, Ljubljana, Slovenia); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid, Spain); Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona, Spain); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen(M HKA, Antwerpen, Belgium); Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej W Warszawie (MSN, Warsaw, Poland); SALT (Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey); Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, the Netherlands).

L'Internationale works with complementary partners such as Valand Academy (Gothenburg University, Sweden) and the National College of Art and Design (NCAD, Dublin, Ireland), along with associate organisations from academic and artistic fields.

The confederation takes its name from the workers' anthem "L'Internationale", which calls for an equitable and democratic society with reference to the historical labour movement.

In addition to the projects, research and activities which L’Internationale fosters, there are two online platforms which are transversal to the confederation work.

Our Many Europes

Our Many Europes. Europe's Critical ‘90s and the Constituent Museum

Our Many Europes is a programme organised by the European museum confederation L’Internationale and co-financed by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme. The members of L’Internationale and its partners Valand Academy (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (NCAD, Ireland) will present more than 40 public activities (conferences, exhibitions, workshops) in the framework of this project.

The Uses of Art

The Uses of Art - The legacy of 1848 and 1989

This programme, organised by L’Internationale and co-financed by the European Union’s Culture Programme, started in 2013 and proposes new readings of European art history. Its perspective on the past is anchored in the long history of civil society, tracing it back to the civic revolutions of 1848 through wars and social changes, up to the revolutions of 1989 and then on to the economic crises of today.
