In 2021, the Swedish Arts Council received SEK 25 million from the government to acquire new art. The initiative was a government assignment aimed at supporting Swedish artists during the corona crisis. The addition was a powerful increase in the annual new purchases of art that the Swedish Arts Council has made since 1937. Through the initiative, there are now over 500 newly acquired works with various forms of expression by 350 artists, representing different generations with different backgrounds, and operating in places spread over throughout the country. In collaboration with the Swedish Arts Council, Havremagasinet presents a selection from the collection with around 70 works by 56 artists.
