Djurberg & Berg is one of the most famous artistic duos in today’s contemporary global art market. This thesis will pinpoint crucial relationships and important career milestones that helped them achieve international recognition and success. As this thesis argues, one of the most important relationships is with Moderna Museet. Moderna Museet is a well-renowned top-tier museum that brings legitimacy to the artists it shows. As a government-funded museum, it is responsible for promoting Swedish art, and artists can not go unnoticed.
Along with Moderna Museet, the duo has established vital support from major
institutions such as the Fondazione Prada and Julia Stoschek Collection, among others. These relationships are thoroughly analyzed in this thesis. Creating and sustaining relationships with influential patrons and institutions in the art world has been crucial for Djurberg & Berg’s careers.
