La collection - notre trésor

Le Musée Rietberg de Zurich est le seul musée suisse entièrement dédié aux civilisations extra-européennes. Sa collection, célèbre dans le monde entier, rassemble des œuvres de l’Asie, de l’Afrique, de l’Amérique et de l’Océanie. Tout en attirant l’attention sur l’extraordinaire diversité des formes d’expression artistiques, le musée souhaite éveiller l’intérêt du public à des civilisations, des idées ou des religions qui lui sont étrangères.

The core of the Museum's collection dates back to a generous donation of Baron Eduard von der Heydt. Through the long standing contact with patrons, collectors as well as foundations and corporate sponsors, the Museum Rietberg has been able to grow continuously.

With the extension which opened in February 2007, the new Museum Rietberg has more than doubled its exhibition space. Works of art from Asia, Africa, America and Oceania which have not yet been shown are now made publicly accessible for the first time. Vitrines, wall colours and lighting are coordinated so as to accentuate the distinguishing characteristics of each of the single works of art. The use of wall texts, lengthy labels, cards and flickering monitors has been purposely avoided since the unique, undiminished splendourof therespectiveworks of art should fully come into their own. Information on the respective cultural backgrounds is provided by a short introductory brochure.
