Migros Museum

The collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst owes its existence to the supportive gesture of an entrepreneur: Gottlieb Duttweiler, the founder of the largest Swiss retailer, Migros, began to purchase works of art in the mid-1950s. Today, the collection of artworks amassed over the years for the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst has an impact that goes far beyond its initial significance as a company collection designed to foster the careers of local and national artists.

As a museum collection it has been distinguished in particular since 1996 by the interaction and intermingling of collecting and exhibiting activities. That was the founding year of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, which proceeded with ease to set itself apart from its large and venerable colleagues.
