In 2014, MADmusée had an exhibition at Intuit in Chicago (USA) which initiated a unique partnership with the brewery Duvel Moortgat. During the next three years, the brewery group will support the acquisition policy of the MADmusée in the United States.. Those acquisitions gave birth to the Duvel Moortgat Fund, a remarkable collection that counts at present time around 275 works, made by mentally impaired artists in studios in the USA.
