Founded in 1977, KØS is Denmark’s museum dedicated to art in public spaces. The museum collections comprise more than 18,000 drawings, models, and other preliminary works for these unique works of art—from our shared urban spaces, hospitals, castles, churches, and other public areas. 


A succession of special exhibitions provides unique insights into the special processes and problems associated with creating art for the public space. In addition to sketches, drawings, and models, these exhibitions often feature photographs, film footage, and correspondences that shed light on the artists’ interplay with architects and urban planners. The exhibitions also provide insights into the discussions that arise when art enters the public space.
