KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces is dedicated to researching, promoting, and debating public art nationally and internationally. The museum exhibits, produces and promotes art projects by national and international artists, initiates research that boosts the field theoretically, and collects and registers the material and digital traces of public art projects to ensure they are accessible in the present and preserved for posterity.

KØS collection comprises 18,000 fabulous sketches, models and preparatory step-by-step studies of art in public spaces, illustrating the exciting and challenging processes involved in creating art in this context.

A visit to the museum also includes KØS Shop, which is strongly focused on art in public spaces but also offering an excellent selection of quality products in interior and other design and fashion. 

In KØS Café you can enjoy vegetarian and plant-based open face and regular sandwiches, freshly baked cakes made from seasonal ingredients, freshly brewed coffee, organic wine and beer and much more.

From December 2022, KØS Café has become part of the artist duo Cooking Sections’ project Becoming CLIMAVORE. In relation to this we have developed a tasty, climate-conscious menu in collaboration with Cooking Sections and chef Mads Hermansen. The menu changes with the seasons and is based on local ingredients from sustainable food producers. We look forward to bringing you along on the journey!
