L'Internationale is a confederation of six modern 
and contemporary art institutions which proposes 
a space for art within a non-hierarchical and 
decentralised internationalism, based on the 
values of difference and horizontal exchange 
among a constellation of cultural agents, 
locally-rooted and globally connected. It brings 
together six major European museums: Moderna 
galerija (MG+MSUM, Ljubljana); Museo Nacional 
Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid); 
Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, 
Barcelona); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst 
Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp); SALT (Istanbul and 
Ankara) and Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven). The 
confederation takes its name from the workers' 
anthem "L'Internationale," which calls for an 
equitable and democratic society with reference 
to the historical labour movement.

L'Internationale Online is the joint initiative 
of KASK, its coordinator, and the museum 
confederation L'Internationale within the 
framework of the five-year programme: The Uses of 
Art - The Legacy of 1848 and 1989. It is designed 

In The Uses of Art programme L'Internationale 
works with partners such as Grizedale Arts (GA, 
Coniston, UK), Liverpool John Moores University 
(LJMU, Liverpool), Stiftung Universität 
Hildesheim (UH, Hildesheim, Germany) and 
University College Ghent School of Arts (KASK, 
Ghent), along with associate organisations from 
the academic and artistic fields. The programme 
is also co-funded by a grant awarded by the 
Culture Programme of the European Union.

Uses of Art proposes new readings of European art 
history for the broader public. This new 
perspective on the past is anchored in the long 
history of civil society, tracing it back to the 
civic revolutions of 1848, through wars and 
social changes, to the revolutions of 1989, and 
then to the economic crises of today. 
L'Internationale Online has the specific function 
to present the topics addressed in the various 
activities of L'Internationale, and 
Uses of Art programme. 

It is a place where both differences and 
commonalities can appear and be debated. 

An online platform for research and opinions.
