The New Carlsberg Foundation supports the publication of Danish art journals which contribute, with originality and quality, to Danish art criticism and art research. Art journals can stimulate and strengthen art criticism and art research in Denmark, thereby contributing to the development of Danish art.

The New Carlsberg Foundation endeavours to have the range of supported journals reflect great breadth and diversity in terms of media, formats, perspectives, geography, gender, art forms etc.

The New Carlsberg Foundation supports journals that critically and competently present Danish art in a global perspective, as well as journals that introduce art and research from outside of Denmark in a Danish context.
