On this face-paced tour through the Kunsthaus Zürich, we learn all kinds of useless knowledge and listen to weird anecdotes about works of art from all eras.
It is Friday afternoon and Zurich is basking in fabulous summer weather. Not exactly the best conditions to motivate people to go on a guided tour of the Kunsthaus Zürich – or so you might think. But in fact we are very excited about what is awaiting us – and we are not disappointed.
At midday, we receive a mysterious SMS from our guide, Jean-Marc. We meet him in the entrance area of the museum, where we receive our name tags and admission badges. Then off we go. From the imposing “Gates of Hell” to a heated artwork in the inner courtyard, and then back into the museum building. Our guide strides through the collection at a brisk pace. We hear many anecdotes about halos, witches, Lucretia, olive oil, postcards, consolation pictures, and windmills, right through to the Rütli Oath. After just an hour and a half, we find ourselves back in the Kunsthaus entrance hall and are completely overwhelmed as to how much you can learn about works of art from all the various eras within such a short space of time – and in such an amusing and entertaining way.
Conclusion: an art tour-with-a-difference for fit, active, and fun-loving contemporaries.
