Kunsthaus Zug – From Viennese Modernism to Swiss Surrealism
The collection of the Kunsthaus Zug (art museum) comprises works ranging from classical Modernism to modern art.
The Kunsthaus Zug is home to the most important collection of Viennese Modernism outside of Austria with works by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt. The collection also focuses on artists from the Swiss Surrealism movement and creative artists from the Zug region. Due to a lack of space, the multifaceted collection is not on permanent display, but is presented in temporary theme-based exhibitions. Every year, four or five projects are devoted to contemporary and 20th century art.
With its “Collection Project”, the Kunsthaus Zug has entered into a long-standing cooperation with international artists. Artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Pavel Pepperstein Christoph Rütimann, Roman Signer or Richard Tuttle have already contributed to this innovative collection model. The idyllic garden, light rooms and charming bar offer visitors a special ambience while enjoying the artwork.
The Kunsthaus Zug offers an art travel guide in German for children, school classes and families, inviting them to embark on fascinating walks to artworks in Zug. In addition, family workshops introduce art to children, young people, as well as adults with all the senses and encourage a multifaceted dialogue with works of art. On request, families can also obtain an exhibition guide with useful information about things to look out for.
