The visibility zone is a concept useful for analyzing national galleries (or national museums in general) in relation to contemporary challenges of globalisation.

First of all the impact of the concept will be made clear and the visibility zone of national galleries will be related to the global museum culture. In the second half of this paper a couple of examples will follow. These are narratives found in the visibility zone of national galleries. They will illustrate general; potential nar¬rative problems. And they will be a short outline of which kind of challenges contemporary national galleries face in the visibility zone. This second half is a brief introduction illustrating how national galleries today compete with each other in the visibility zone to invent the future national gallery concept.
