Swiss Post has a long tradition of promoting art and is committed to supporting contemporary Swiss art.

The collection currently features around 400 works of all genres, most of which are exhibited in the Swiss Post administrative buildings. Swiss Post employees are able to borrow artworks for their office via an internal database if the appropriate space is available.

The collection also includes a broad, Switzerland-wide portfolio of commissioned art. After the Second World War, commissions for such art served to support artists who were living under precarious circumstances and to give them a platform for their work. In conjunction with the Swiss Federal Art Commission, Swiss Post has put out calls for tenders for architectural art competitions. Around 180 projects have come to life during the many years of this collaboration. Some are now in buildings that Swiss Post has sold, or which had to give way to new buildings.

The Art Department takes care of expanding and maintaining this substantial collection of contemporary Swiss art.
