public art - Konstdatabasen
Konstdatabasen is a system for the state-owned public art, which includes over 100,000 artworks located on more than 200 government agencies and about 1,600 permanent building-based works of art specifically commissioned for state-owned environments and buildings. The state public art collections have grown for a long time and represent high artistic, cultural and economic values.
In order to ensure that the state public art collections are cared for both on a long term basis and professionally, the Public Art Agency Sweden has since 2004 overseen the state government's public art. The works are registered in Konstdatabasen and then used a documentation for yearly inventory, damages and police reports. Konstdatabasen was started in 2000 and is run by ArtSafe on behalf of the Public Art Agency Sweden.
ArtSafe has developed, and contiue to oversee, the Public Art Agency's internal art system for storage and logistics management.
