The MSK regularly invites contemporary artists, art organisations and social partners to interact with its historical collection and iconic building. Their installations, performances, artworks and musical interventions are sometimes invited to remain here for several months or years.

In addition, close collaboration with fellow museums create rich dialogues between old, modern and contemporary art. Through projects of this nature, the MSK keeps linking its historical collection to the current practice of art, inviting the visitor to reflect on the ties between past, present and future.
