Full Description

In October 2021, David Chipperfield’s new extension of the Kunsthaus Zürich will open for the public. The new wing doubles the museum’s space for art display. Perhaps more importantly, it offers the opportunity to present larger parts of the museum’s permanent collection in a new light and in new groupings. The Chipperfield building is now home to the renowned Merzbacher, Hubert Looser, and Emil Bührle collections, all on permanent loan to the museum.

The formidable selection of French impressionist paintings in the Emil Bührle Collection combined with Kunsthaus Zürich’s own holdings of that period constitutes the largest display of impressionist art outside France. In addition, Surrealism, art from the post-war period, Pop Art, and contemporary art now have the prominent space they deserve.

This new book offers an introduction to the curatorial concept as well as concise essays on key aspects of Kunsthaus Zurich’s permanent collection. Lavishly illustrated with views of the new exhibits and individual art works, it is an attractive invitation to visit Switzerland’s largest art museum.
