About the Museum
A museum dedicated to contemporary art in Zurich, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst has supported the production, exhibition, and collection of international contemporary artists since 1996. The museum sees itself as a dynamic location for contemporary art, a mission to which its comprehensive art education and event programs contribute as well.
The museum focuses on large-scale productions in close cooperation with the artists. The exhibitions at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst frame art history as a dynamic process that is open to scrutiny, revision, and variation. Incorporating the collection into a lively environment that is in contact with, and promotes, contemporary art production and addresses an open-minded audience is another objective of the museum.
