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.
