Hg2 : The Hedonist

Haus Konstruktiv

Housed in a striking 19th century electricity sub-station, the ewz-Unterwerks on the Sihl river, Haus Konstructiv offers four floors of dramatic modern art. Founded in the mid-80s to promote ‘constructive, concrete and conceptual art and design’, it has helped to place Zürich as a centre of excellence for modern architecture, art and design.

It is home to a permanent collection of works by a wide range of artists, and holds thematic exhibitions incorporating works from their own, private and public collections. Exhibitions range from ‘Ganz Konkret’, which looks at 100 years of concrete, conceptual and constructivist art from Josef Albers, Sonia Delaunay, Wassily Kandinsky and Andy Warhol, to showcasing a particular artist or movement.

On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, the gallery offers guided tours for the normal entry price.
