Art in a Business Context

Credit Suisse, a major international bank, has been amassing a corporate collection of Swiss contemporary art since 1975. The collection currently comprises around five thousand items, including works by such internationally recognized artists as John Armleder, Monica Studer and Christoph van den Berg, Balthasar Burkhard, and Yves Netzhammer.

Credit Suisse Collection documents this unique collection for the first time, featuring groups of works by thirty individual artists, along with twenty art-in-architecture objects that were commissioned for specific locations and buildings. This complete, illustrated catalog is rounded out by an essay on specific aspects of the collection and brief monographic texts on all featured artists. The artworks are presented in place in the bank’s offices in order to highlight the relationship between architecture and art and to expose unique visual contrasts.
