The Private Foundation – Artists from Gugging was founded in 2003 by the legal representatives of the Artists from Gugging and the Association gugging friends, formerly known as Association – Friends of the House of Artists in Gugging, with the support of the State Government of Lower Austria. The foundation’s goal is to develop a large collection of important works by the Artists from Gugging as well as "Art Brut" in general.
The works in the foundation’s collection are made permanently available to the museum gugging and are presented in temporary exhibitions. In addition, in collaboration with the Department for External Presentations of the gugging friends, works from the foundation’s collection are loaned internationally to other museums and presented in travelling exhibitions.
