At the Kunsthaus Zürich art lovers can admire fascinating temporary exhibitions of international scope and one of the greatest art collections in Switzerland, featuring art from the 13th century to the present. Highlights include not only the largest collection of Munch paintings outside of Norway and the most comprehensive collection of works by Alberto Giacometti but also Impressionist and classic Modernist paintings  – from Monet, Picasso and Chagall to Kokoschka, Beckmann and Corinth. Alongside Pop Art works by both Warhol and Hamilton are works by artists including Rothko, Twombly, Beuys and Baselitz. Video installations and photographs by Fischli/Weiss, Pipilotti Rist and others continue the narrative into the 21st century.
