Bloomberg on Instagram and Art

As he looked through Instagram at home in Copenhagen, Peter Ibsen noticed paintings by French artist Baptiste Caccia that were bound for an art fair in Brussels.

Drop gallerierne – Instagram er nutidens kunstmarked

– Instagram er ikke en online-shopping-portal. Der er ikke en ’klik her og køb’-knap. Man ser noget, man finder interessant, og så tager man dialogen op derfra. Dialogen indledes bare på Instagram, siger Peter Ibsen.

En nybegynders guide: Sådan kommer du i gang med at købe kunst

Gallerier er ikke farlige

PI: ”Mange er bange for at gå på galleri. I starten var jeg da også dødsensangst for at gå ind ad døren og stille dumme spørgsmål. Man tænker: puuuha, de der piger står bare og kigger på én, det er sgu da pinligt. Og så skal man også gå ud ad døren uden at købe noget. Men det er ikke pinligt.

Gallerierne vil gerne have besøg og svare på dine spørgsmål. Især fordi folk nu bruger mindre tid på gallerier og køber mere over nettet. Det er da langt værre, at der ikke kommer nogen.”

Slow motion and “less is more” – Q&A with Danish art collector Peter Ibsen

Interview at with Peter Ibsen

Peter Ibsen began to collect art in 1995, when a painting in the window of an art gallery caught his attention. Although the painting in question was already sold, Ibsen found out who the artist was, and as simply as that, he has been intimately linked with art ever since. In his first decade of collecting, Ibsen focused on colorful figurative painting. This lasted until he came upon the masterful black and white works of the German minimalist painter, Gregor Hildebrandt. Ibsen’s conversion was so strong that he sold almost all of his color paintings, and now his collection is mainly based on abstract, minimalist works, with most everything done in shades of black, white and gray >>

Key Players.


In this famed land of equality, there’s a community of contributors helping to evolve the art scene. Artists such as Olafur Eliasson, who enchanted New York with his waterfalls, and painter/sculptor Per Kirkeby, whose reputation was elevated by his 2009 Tate Modern exhibition, are putting Danish art in the headlines. Peter Ibsen, known for his tightly curated collection of black-and-white minimal artworks, is also the man behind the well-read websites and

Ibsen has also opened Sunday Gallery as a brick-and-mortar space as well as joining Mikkel Carl in curating the new CODE art fair. Christian Andersen is a leader in producing consistently challenging shows, which he does at his namesake gallery, as well as offering a strong stable of established Danish and German artists at his second space, Andersen’s Contemporary. Lastly, and not to be underestimated, is the effect of the Danish Arts Foundation. Among the top public funders per capita in the world, it earmarked 80 million kroner in 2015 for working grants to artists. That is out of a funding budget of 500 million kroner spent on programmes to artists, institutions and other cultural agents.
