Why register with Independent Collectors?

Apart from the current features, like digital storage and exhibition space for your collection, networking functions, event calendars and much more, the next 12 months will bring more exciting changes. We will publish the first 'Art Expedition', a short film produced in Berlin with the support of BMW. We will initiate additional forms of membership, new features concerning the 'restructuring' of collections and more useful tools a collector might need.

If you're a collector and interested to participate, come and join us now!

Your Independent Collectors Team.
