At the EPO, contemporary art meets science and technology in unique fashion. Since 1978, works have regularly been commissioned from a wide range of artists. The result is a collection of conceptual contemporary art that seeks to inspire our staff by shaping their daily work environment. For visitors from all over the world, it is also proof of the EPO's commitment to art. Our curatorial work imbues it with social relevance, transforming discrete artworks into a single aesthetic experience. What results is a space that people are happy to work in, because it is increasingly clear that art enhances the workplace - especially in the digital age - by exposing people to original ideas. Art in the workplace creates identity, both internally and externally.
