A feeling for outstanding works: the sucess story of 20 years of the Fondation Beyeler

The Fondation Beyeler opened its doors for the first time on October 18, 1997 to make the treasures of its collection accessible to the broader public. Little more than twenty years separate that moment from the present, during which time the museum has gained unique renown and a permanent place in the international art world. This is attributable not only to founders Ernst and Hildy Beyeler’s special capacity to discover and assemble outstanding works of art, but also to the uninterrupted continuation of their collection activity.
On the occasion of the Fondation’s twentieth anniversary, this richly illustrated publication allows us to hear directly from the artists represented in this collection. Their quotes, letters, interviews, or personal writings, stem from—as well as speak polyphonically about—approaches to and thoughts on art. By gathering these artists, the past and present are united for the special purpose of looking forward, with pleasant anticipation, to the next twenty years. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-4333-4)
