"The headquarters of UNESCO in Paris house the largest collection of the United Nations. The UNESCO collection was neither planned nor curated by anyone. It came about from gifts from artists, representatives of the member states, visitors and personalities who wanted to support UNESCO's aims in this way. The collection is global and, unencumbered by any thematic constraints, includes all kinds of styles and forms of expression. This wide range reflects UNESCO's philosophy of "Building a Culture of Peace" perfectly. The Republic of Austria appreciates the UNESCO collection as an extraordinary art treasure. By means of a very special art project, Austria lets all member states share in the UNESCO collection. The photographs unite the items of this art collection in a virtual exhibition."--Page 11.
