FRAGILE. The Post’s Art Collection in Dialogue

Versandkarton mit Schnee gefüllt - Susan Hefuna

Beside Switzerland’s museum collections, there are major public art collections that are little known and hardly noticed by the general public. This includes the collection of Swiss Post, which goes back to the federal ordinance for the elevation and promotion of Swiss art, which has existed for approximately 100 years. Swiss Post in cooperation with Swiss museums is using this longstanding forwarding tradition as an occasion for giving insight into their comprehensive collecting activity. The Art Museum Graubünden is showing a selection of the Post’s works and presenting them in dialogue with the museum’s collection and with key loans. In doing so the focus is not only on the Post’s commitment to art but also on crucial notions concerning communication in a world that has become exceedingly fragile.
