in the Region of Västra Götaland, Sweden. The essay is mainly an investigation of an art storage own
by the region of Västra Götaland which is administrated and managed by the art unit in Vänersborg.
Their main goal is to expose art to the public, in putting art into hospitals, schools etc. and in doing so

considered should always be the goal with the collection which is to be used and exposed in the
