1996 – The Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst opens its doors

The Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst opens on the site of the former Löwenbräu brewery in Zurich on 4 May 1996. The FMC art collection, which has grown consistently over the last 20 years, is exhibited over 1,300m2 of floor space. However, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst does not see itself as a traditional museum where new art is collected, but rather as a hub for contemporary art production. The museum’s exhibitions present art history as a dynamic process and not as something rigid.
