Art collectors are the known-unknowns of the art world. Vast sections of the art and gallery scene count on their support and commitment. But what about the future of art collecting? Will young collectors in the digital age develop alternative concepts? Are they as present in the up-and-coming project spaces as they are the galleries? What strategies have they gleaned from the established collections and those that have been growing for years? As part of its series “The Art of Collecting,” “artmagazine.cc” will give insight into the young collectors scene in Vienna and discuss the future of contemporary art collecting.
