In 2014 Burger Collection ventured into a collaboration with the magazine ArtAsiaPacific where we explore the collection in another form. In our six-page column called "Inside Burger Collection" we extend the journey and deepen our engagement with topics around art and artists represented in the collection or with subject-matter that concern the collection.
