Mirabaud announces Partnership with the Bechtler Stiftung

Mirabaud is delighted to announce a new three-year partnership with the Bechtler Stiftung, a renowned institution founded by the Bechtler family, dedicated to contemporary art. This collaboration marks a new milestone in our commitment to fostering creativity and enriching cultural engagement in the Zurich region and beyond.

Zurich - CH

Through its involvement with museums, artists and art fairs, Mirabaud has a longstanding history of supporting contemporary art, always in a spirit of sharing and dialogue. “Creativity and passion are fundamental to any type of innovation, to rethinking oneself and remaining open to new opportunities”, explains Michael T. Hoesli, Head German speaking Switzerland, Mirabaud & Cie. “Innovation has constructed the bicentenary heritage of the Maison Mirabaud, today an international banking and financial Group that has preserved its strong entrepreneurial values and indepen¬dence”.
The Mirabaud Group, with the 7th generation of the family at its helm, supports contemporary artists in their creative endeavours by acquiring works for its vast collection – built up over the years under the impetus of Lionel Aeschlimann, Managing Partner of Mirabaud – while also partnering with galleries, museums, public art projects and other exhibition venues.
Mirabaud’s deep belief in the transformative power of artistic expression aligns perfectly with the mission of the Bechtler Foundation, whose founders share the same passion for contemporary art.
The Bechtler Stiftung, a museum for contemporary art, houses “The 2000 Sculpture” by Walter De Maria and the video installation “I Couldn’t Agree With You More” by Pipilotti Rist, alongside biannual temporary exhibitions showcasing international artists. The museum is located within the picturesque Zellweger Park in Uster, which features large apartment buildings designed by leading Swiss architects and a collection of significant sculptures by renowned artists. This cultural landmark underscores our mission to bring art closer to the community.
The Bechtler Foundation’s dedication to contemporary art and community engagement resonates deeply with Mirabaud’s values.
