The library is located in Kulturhuset Mazetti, Bergsgatan 29.



The library at Malmö Art Academy has existed since the fall of 1995 when the school received a donation from Einar Hansen Allhemsstiftelse and the basis of the collections were made. Since the donation was mainly focused on the art before the 1900s the school has been focusing on supplementing the library's collections. This is to respond to the students’ and teachers’ demands and expectations on a library belonging to a contemporary international art academy.

The library's collection consists of around 7000 volumes, including monographs, exhibition catalogues, art history, art theory and related subjects such as philosophy, psychology and sociology.

Students and staff at the Malmö Art Academy are eligible to borrow from the library. Visiting guests are of course most welcome to sit in the library and read. The library also serves as a collection site for books that are ordered from other libraries through the Lovisa catalogue. If you are a patron from another institution and want to pick up books or visit the library please call 040-325722 and double check that the library is opened and staffed since the library is often used as teaching venue.

Sophie Nilsson, the librarian, will assists with loan circulation and information searching.

Please make a call or send an email to make sure the library is staffed.
