Stiftung Brasilea

Founded in 2003 as a cultural centre to promote and disseminate Brazilian culture

The Brasilea Foundation was founded to promote and disseminate Brazilian culture and art.  The establishment of the Brasilea Foundation is based on the Walter Wüthrich Collection, which arose out of the longstanding friendship between the founder Walter Wüthrich and Franz Josef Widmar.

The Foundation aims to achieve its objective through cooperation with other institutions in Brazil and Switzerland and Brazilians who have settled in the region. Therefore, it fosters cultural exchange between Switzerland and Brazil.

Artists in the permanent collection include Taciana Amorim, Jose Bechara, Heleno Bernardi, Maureen Bisilliat, Bel Borba, Jorge Borges, Carlos Bracher, Elon Brasil, Marcelo Bratke, Saint Clair Cemin, Guillermo Conte, Daniel Cucatti, Gétulio Damato, Nilda Danil, Jaqueline De Barros, João de Orleans e Bragança, Gabriel De Paiva, Manfredo De Souzanetto, Carlos Dias, Elena Dominguez Rendeiro, Maria Dundakova, Denise Feliz, Alex Flemming, Anja Ganster, Christoph Gloor, Nilda Graeser, Norma Grinberg, Ronaldo Grossman, Andreas Heiniger, Fondation Herzog, Hilal Sami Hilal, Alfredo Takashi Hisa, Stephan Hofmann, Miriam Homem de Mello, Magy Imoberdorf, Thelma Innecco, Claudia Jaguaribe, Valentin Jaquet, Regina Kemp, Boris Kossoy, Lucas Kunz, Marcia Limani, Fabia Livia de Carvalho, Mariannita Luzzati, Ana Malbouisson, Almir Mavignier, Daniel Melim, Claudia Melli, Nicole Miescher, Andrea Moccio, Carlos Roberto Muniz, Luiz Geraldo Dolino Nascimento, Oscar Niemeyer, Adalardo Nunciato Santiago, Daniel Oppliger, Haroldo Paranhos, Maria-Carmen Perlingeiro, Cristina Portella, Beat Presser, Presto Presto, Heidi Rehse, Eduardo Saretta, Tobias Sauter, Mira Schendel, Elisabeth Schiess, Orlando Geremia Schüpbach, Severino Silva, Renata Silveira, Luiz Simoes, Fifo Stricker, Evandro Teixeira, Armarinhos Teixeira, Lilian Valladares, Pierre Verger, Dora Wainer, Aloysio Zaluar, Jose Capela Zezão
