Museum Haus Konstruktiv

Founded in 1986, the museum is one of the leading galleries in the Swiss cultural landscape.

Situated in the heart of Zurich, Museum Haus Konstruktiv is one of the leading galleries in the Swiss cultural landscape. The still-thriving mindset of the Zurich Concretists – Max Bill (1908-1994), Richard Paul Lohse (1902-1988), Verena Loewensberg (1912-1986) and Camille Graeser (1892-1980) – and the stimuli of intellectually akin conceptual art constitute the notional basis for the exhibitions and their accompanying events. Founded in 1986, the museum found a new home in 2001, in the ewz-Unterwerk Selnau building: an imposing structure in the New Objectivity style.
