Switzerland // The Swiss heartland //

Museum Jean Tinguely

On the north bank of the Rhine at Paul Sacher-Anlage 2, the beautiful Museum Jean Tinguely is dedicated to one of Switzerland’s best-loved artists. Tinguely used scrap metal, plastic and everyday junk to create room-sized Monty Pythonesque machines, veering between grotesque and comical, that – with the touch of a button – judder into life, clanking and squeaking.
