Institution

With his kinetic artworks, Jean Tinguely (1925–1991) was a pioneering figure in the art of the period after 1950. Museum Tinguely, designed by Mario Botta, is located directly at the Rhine and presents the world’s largest collection of his work, of which a selection is on permanent display, from the delicate early reliefs to the monumental machine sculptures of the 1980s.

Museum Tinguely shows a varied temporary exhibition programme that seeks dialogue with other artists, art forms and disciplines, promising an interactive museum experience for all of the senses.

A diverse programme of events – with guided tours and workshops for all age groups, concerts, artistic interventions and interdisciplinary cooperations – allows visitors to experience the museum’s collection and exhibitions in a wide range of ways.
