Three of Europe’s most prestigious museums of modern and contemporary art – the Centre Pompidou, the Tate and the MMK Museum fur Moderne Kunst – are bringing major works from their collections together to create a temporary European museum.

The conceptual point of departure for this unique international museum collaboration is a vision of the future: The year is 2052. The museums are threatened with extinction, and art is disappearing from society. In this science-fiction scenario, more than eighty masterpieces from three European collections are united in a temporary transnational museum. It features works dating from the 1920s to the present by such prominent artists as Louise Bourgeois, Marcel Duchamp, Isa Genzken, On Kawara, Claes Oldenburg, Sigmar Polke, Bridget Riley, Andy Warhol and many more.

The exhibition features Carlos Cruz-Diez's Physichromie 506, created in 1970, and part of Centre Pompidou's collection.
