HEIRLOOM — center for art and archives is a non-profit arts organization in Copenhagen dedicated to exhibiting and initiating projects with a focus on the artistic archive. HEIRLOOM is concerned with exploring artistic legacy and overlooked collections in dialogue with contemporary art. The program pays special attention to ephemeral practices and discussions around gender, identity and transnational exchanges. It is Heirloom's ambition to revisit and contextualize art practices through new curatorial concepts and formats. The organization is physically located in Copenhagen but operates internationally.

HEIRLOOM was founded and is run by curators and art historians Stine Hebert and Johanne Løgstrup in response to the urgent need to document and make available the many histories of art.


Heirloom offers a variety of possibilities to study and learn more about art, archives and legacies. We offer guided tours and educational courses in connection with the exhibitions. Please contact us for more detailed information. 

Heirloom works strategically to offer advice and guidance for artists and institutions in collaboration with other specialists.
