The Collection of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein

The collection is the heart of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, from which all other areas and activities develop. The collection is the driving force behind the exhibition programme and provides the impetus for our broad and active education programme. It also represents the larger part of the state's art collection and as such is an important and integral part of the public image of Liechtenstein.

 

The collection of international modern and contemporary art covers the period from the nineteenth century to the present; the acquisition policy focuses on twentieth and twenty-first century works, especially sculptures and installations. Special attention has been given to the selection of independent artistic positions. Furthermore, the artworks are not only of the highest quality, but also engage in a stimulating dialogue with other works.

 

The acquisition policy intentionally avoids limitations of geography, style, epoch or specific media; instead it pursues themes of particular significance in modern and contemporary art. Abstract and minimal art, conceptual art and Arte Povera encounter anthropological approaches of the kind found in symbolism, futurism and surrealism, or in the individual mythologies of Joseph Beuys and in other aspects of Arte Povera.

 

The quality of individual works, their significance, their specific theme and – a particular focus – sculpture, are the central hubs that make the museum a vital place for cultural engagement with contemporary art.
