Status of collection:
The Julius Baer Art Collection encompasses over 5'000 works spanning a wide array of media. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, graphics, and drawings are displayed in Julius Baer's meeting rooms, staff restaurants, offices, foyers, and corridors around the globe. Established in 1981 by Hans J. Baer (1927-2011), the Collection was inspired by his belief that art in the workplace presents a wonderful starting point of conversation. Today the works continue to engage and intrigue both employees and visiting clients alike.
The Collection aims to promote the visual arts in Switzerland and specialises in pieces by contemporary artists of Swiss nationality, or those who live and work in Switzerland. In line with Julius Baer's entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, the Collection focuses on supporting up-and-coming artists, following them throughout their careers, to develop an exciting and diverse collection.
It features artworks by some of Switzerland's most important contemporary artists, including John Armleder, Silvia Bächli, Lutz & Guggisberg, Markus Raetz, Pipilotti Rist, Ugo Rondinone, Roman Signer, to name but a few.
