The loan request must contain:

  • The contact information and contact person of the Applicant
  • The name, place and time of the exhibition
  • The concept and content of the exhibition, briefly
  • A list of the objects included in the loan request

As an attachment to the loan request, please deliver a Facility Report which clearly shows the conditions of the exhibition spaces, for example matters having to do with temperature and humidity control and with the security of the spaces.

For a work loan request to be accepted, it’s required that the Loan Giver presents a transport plan and insures the works for the time span of the loan. The handling of the works has to be done by personnel specialized in handling artworks.
