The inception of the VP Bank’s art collection goes back to the then General Manager Dr. Heinz Batliner, who began acquiring artworks for the bank in the 1970s.

His aim was to integrate art into the world of work: art was not to be tucked away in a store but rather made accessible to customers and staff in the rooms of the bank, a principle that still holds true today. One aim of the VP Bank Art Foundation established in 1996 was to hone the concept of the collection, centring it around painting. Since then, acquisitions have focused on exponents of non-objective art from the post-war period to the present. The VP Bank Art Foundation patronises both international and regional contemporary artists. It has also been collecting works by artists from Liechtenstein, for example Bruno Kaufmann, Georg Malin or Hanna Roeckle, over many years of their work.
