CentrePasquArt

One of Biel's most provocative and attention-getting buildings from the 1990s is the annexe of the CentrePasquArt in Seevorstadt. The internationally renowned architects Diener and Diener extended the existing museum in a no-frills way, creating a distinct but respectful new building next to this former 19th century hospital.

The CentrePasquArt is a space for innovative, creative young artists and encourages those with talent to develop new works of art for the exhibitions.

MAMCO and the “Nuit des Bains”

Located in the heart of Geneva, housed in the former premises of an industrial firm, the Mamco is Switzerland's youngest museum devoted to contemporary art.

Mamco is to date the largest contemporary art museum in Switzerland. It enjoys an international reputation and is recognised as an institution of reference of the contemporary scene.
