Our Corporate Collection

AXA Switzerland's Corporate Collection focuses on modern and contemporary works. Swiss artists such as Max Bill, Franz Gertsch and John M. Armleder form the core collection, but international artists such as Andy Warhol, Franz West and John Chamberlain also feature. It was established in the 1920s by Winterthur Insurance and comprises approx. 1,300 works.

The collection is mostly on display in AXA's public areas, representative rooms and buildings throughout Switzerland. It promotes employee communication, stimulates constructive engagement and supports tolerance of different ways of thinking and opinions.

In the past few years, innovative work environments led to structural changes in AXA premises. This also affected the art in the buildings, offering the opportunity to reposition existing artworks, gear the collection towards Swiss and international contemporary art and make additional purchases.
