Schaulager is an innovative art space and exhibition center located in Münchenstein, just a short distance from Basel. It is a unique concept that combines a museum, an art storage facility, and a research center, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the art world.

The primary purpose of Schaulager is to preserve and exhibit the renowned art collection of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation. The foundation’s collection includes works by major artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, such as Cy Twombly, Bruce Nauman, and Gerhard Richter.

Unlike traditional museums, Schaulager allows visitors to see not only the exhibited artworks but also the storage facilities and conservation areas where the collection is kept and cared for. This immersive experience offers a deeper understanding of the complexities of art preservation and exhibition.

Schaulager hosts rotating exhibitions that draw from its extensive collection, offering visitors an opportunity to encounter diverse and thought-provoking contemporary art. The architecture of Schaulager itself is an artwork, designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, known for their innovative and iconic structures.

For art enthusiasts, scholars, and anyone curious about the inner workings of a contemporary art collection, Schaulager provides a rare and enlightening experience that bridges the gap between the hidden world of art storage and the public exhibition of art.
