In the organisation of an exhibition, the loan between institutions or with private persons is an important part of the project. The MK&G is dependent on these supporting co-operations for its own special exhibitions. At the same time, the MK&G itself lends out several hundred objects from all segments of the collection and material groups every year, thus supporting a wide variety of exhibition projects worldwide. These loans, which must be carefully planned, concern both individual objects and entire collections of objects. During the preparation phase, special emphasis is placed on the appropriate conservation handling during transport and exhibition of an object. The MK&G works in close cooperation with the colleagues of the borrowing institutions and fine art transport companies. The outgoing loans, as well as the passing on of the museum's own travelling exhibitions, enable the museum to make its exciting and diverse collection known to a broad public.

The conditions for outgoing loans from the MK&G can be found here.

The Registrar’s department is the main contact address for all incoming and outgoing loans of the MK&G.
