The network includes seven major European museums: Moderna Galerija (MG, Ljubljana, Slovenia); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid); Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp, Belgium); SALT (Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey); the Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, Netherlands) and the Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej w Warszawie (Warsaw, Poland). Also taking part as associates in the project are several academic and artistic institutions as National College of Art and Design (NCAD) and Dublin and Valand Academy (Gothenburg University).
The first collaboration began with the project 1957–1986. Art from the Decline of Modernism to the Rise of Globalisation, which took place in 2010–12. The second major project, pursued between 2013 and 2017, was entitled The Uses of Art: The Legacy of 1848 and 1989. The years chosen marked two turning points in the formation of a new citizenry. June 2018 saw the launch of the third project, entitled Our Many Europes, a new four-year programme that focuses on the 1990s, the decade in which contemporary Europe was born.
