Contemporary art at the Castell
At the Castell a discussion and examination of contemporary art is encouraged. Notable first-rate artists such as Roman Signer, Pipilotti, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Carsten Höller, Martin Kippenberger, James Turell and many more, have their works represented here. These pieces are on display for all guests to view. All of the works are on loan from the Castell’s main shareholder, Ruedi Bechtler, who has a voluminous private collection.
Library & video collection
Guests may borrow books from the library, which holds a selection of reading material about art, architecture, nature and wellness. The Castell also has its own video collection with a wide variety of rare art videos; these are available for guests to borrow.
The Castell art tour takes place every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. and finishes with a viewing of the installation “Skyspace Piz Uter” by James Turell.
Art videos are shown daily at 5:00 p.m. at the reception.
