Kunsthaus Zürich

The Kunsthaus Zürich exhibits contemporary art and has an impressive collection of works by leading and important artists representing all periods and styles.

We have sponsored the Kunsthaus Zürich since 1997 and, in 2005, became its "partner for contemporary art".

Founded in 1910, the Kunsthaus Zürich focuses on exhibiting selected national and international artists as well as on expanding its own significant collection of contemporary art. It hosts large-scale exhibitions on topical issues and acts as a mediator between artists and the general public. It has also built a unique reputation for successfully “communicating” art to a diverse range of visitors, making it a crucial and influential partner for art enthusiasts, international museums, collectors and dealers.

In 2016, we are looking forward to the opening of the exhibition of the renowned artist Pipilotti Rist.

Pipilotti Rist

26. 02. 16 – 08. 05. 16

Pipilotti Rist (born 1962) is a pioneering figure in video art and has achieved international fame for her sensual and audacious video installations that tackle conventions and taboos in an entertaining, ironic and self-confident way. The exhibition presents key works from the beginning of her international career, including the early single-channel videos with which she became known in the 1980s. Pipilotti Rist is creating a large-format installation in the expansive space of the Bührle gallery especially for the exhibition, in which she explores new artistic and technical avenues.

The show is more than just a retrospective: it is conceived to fill the designated space in its totality as one single installation, in which new and older works reveal surprising links between the various phases of her career and fields of activity. The catalogue, in German and English, is designed as a glossary illuminating the most important themes and concepts of Pipilotti Rist’s artistic universe through literary and visual materials. The exhibition with Pipilotti Rist is an exclusive presentation at the Kunsthaus Zürich.
