Socle du Monde appears as the most important art event in the region and an absolute focus on the international art arena.
Socle du Monde is a hub for art, culture and progressive thinking among businesses and performing artists. Socle du Monde is based on the progressive arts, where global artistic expression is put into a local framework. Socle du Monde helps to make the region attractive in both artistic and commercial contexts. With Socle du Monde we establish a laboratory which examines the relationship between art and industry, when the artistic freedom is total.
Behind the Sets
The Socle du Monde Biennials are organized by Socle du Monde ApS - a non-profit company. Behind Socle du Monde ApS are the two shareholders Herning Art Museum and the Business Council Herning-Ikast-Brande-Aaskov. The two organizations will act as equal partners.
