The DSM Art Collection presently consists of contemporary international art with a special focus on innovation and sustainability, themes that are important for DSM as a global, purpose-ledcompany.
DSM is committed to create brighter lives and seeks to engage with its social environment in many different ways. DSM's own art collection is one of the ways in which, for more than a hundred years already, the company has expressed this engagement.
Through art the DSM Art Collection aims to provide a bright impact on the lives of DSM employees worldwide by bringing them into contact with contemporary art and offer them an inspiring work environment. DSM wants to collect art at a high professional level fitting the professional reputation of the company and to support and reinforce DSM's strategy and image by connecting to major themes as innovation, sustainability, high growth economies. By means of art DSM wants to reinforce and support community development by building a bridge between DSM and (inter)national society.
DSM began as a modest coal mining company in 1902. How did we transform over the years from Dutch coal miners to an international company that connects its unique competences in Life Sciences and Materials Sciences to create solutions that nourish, protect and improve performance?
For more than a century we've led innovative thinking, created innovative products, and even reinvented ourselves more than once. When the time was right, we made significant investments and acquisitions and reorganized when needed. Now, we are a global leader in Health, Nutrition and Materials.
