The library of the Kunsthaus Zürich offers comprehensive information for all, who are interested in modern art. It is a library for users, which provides current as well as historical specialist literature. Most of the media can be borrowed home.
As a special library for modern art the library acquires publications in the history of art from the 19th to the 21st century. As modern art itself, the literature in art history is international, but Swiss art and art historical publications from Switzerland don't get a raw deal.
Most of the books and journals in the library are written in German, English, French or Italian, but there are also publications in other languages.
Many publications contain numerous illustrations, often in color and in high quality.
