The Museu Coleção Berardo presents the most significant artistic movements from the twentieth century to the present day. In this museum, it is possible to find works by artists from the most diverse cultural contexts and with the most varied forms of expression, all of whom would come to make up the art history of the last century. Names such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, Max Ernst, Vieira da Silva, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd and Bruce Nauman, among many others, are presented within the framework of the artistic movements which their works allowed to define through a chronological succession that enables the spectator to take a trip through the period in question.

On the floor 2, the visitor can find an initial section devoted to historic avant-garde movements such as Cubist Space, Dadaism, Constructivisms, Surrealism, Informalism and Pop Art. Covering a major area of the floor -1, the continuation of the route through the second half of the twentieth century through to the present day is marked out, presenting Minimalism, Conceptualism, Arte Povera, as well as the wide range of approaches that have come to construct the present.

Throughout this broad historical panorama, it is also be possible to discover the small stories that have not been confined to the unity of an axiom but have actualized other possibilities, constituting in themselves an ongoing creation of other expressions and other times within history itself.
