New York's Museum of Modern Art has added a set of screenprints known as the "Occuprint Portfolio" to their collection. The portfolio contains 31 screenprints saved from the Occupy Wall Street movement that began two years ago in Manhattan and spread around the world. MoMA's chief curator of drawings and prints Christophe Cherix said that the portfolio is "something very important in relation to New York, what’s happening now, and at the same time we felt the portfolio had a very interesting relationship to other works in the collection from different periods but that are all trying to socially engage with the public."
While there is no exhibition planned for the pieces yet, visitors can see them in the museum's study center along with the other paper documents in their collection that are not on display. While the Occupy movement is technically not over, it is important that someone keeps a record of it and MoMA has just put themselves in a position to lead that charge.
