“With hundreds of artists and almost one thousand works of art, it’s very difficult to make a selection. How can you do justice to all of them? How can you even just visually take in so much at once? And yet: looking makes you want to look more, scrolling begins to stimulate your senses. Before you know it, you’ve found a few personal favorites that you can welcome onto center stage. The aspects and qualities that you value and appreciate can be clearly recognized in the individual works you’ve chosen as well as their relationship to one another. Navigating the PArt website feels as if you were able to stroll through the storage rooms of a museum late at night and put together your own private collection.”
