The Kunstmuseum Luzern is one of the most important art museums in Switzerland. Focussed on current issues, open to the general public, barrier-free and inclusive, it promotes diversity and exchange. The Kunstmuseum Luzern cultivates partnerships in Lucerne as well as throughout Europe when organising its about ten exhibitions each year. A varied programme is ensured by means of ambitious temporary exhibitions with an international flair, a judicious presentation of the collection, and first solo exhibitions of works by young artists. It is possible to see three exhibitions in parallel at the museum, which means that different audiences are addressed simultaneously and discoveries facilitated. The thematic range is reflected in the diversity of the events and educational programmes. The comprehensive, stimulating and equally enjoyable offer of the educational team also reflects this wealth of topics.

The Kunstgesellschaft Luzern (Lucerne Art Society) is the umbrella organisation for the Kunstmuseum Luzern and has about 2,500 members. Since it was founded more than 200 years ago, the Kunstgesellschaft has contributed to cultural diversity in Central Switzerland and presented exciting exhibitions. As a result, the Kunstmuseum Luzern is in a position to take current events into account and pursue its commitment to the avant-garde. The Kunstmuseum Luzern has always liked to keep up-to-date: In 1935, for example, the exhibition These, Antithese und Synthese, with works by Kandinsky, Miró, Picasso and many others, brought together the Who’s Who of the art scene at the time. In the 1970s, Jean-Christophe Ammann brought the young art scene, performance art and happenings to Lucerne, and in the 1990s, works by Jeff Wall, Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman were shown. The current director, Fanni Fetzer, continues to cultivate this open-minded and innovative spirit.
