Loan inquiries by Museums

For inquiries about borrowing artworks and design objects that are on permanent loan in Swiss art and design museums, kindly address requests directly to the respective institution(s).

The Swiss Federal Art Collections process only individual loan requests for works held at the Bern Collection Center or in a building of the Swiss Federal Administration within the country or abroad. In order to respond to the loan request within a satisfactory interval of time, and to ensure the best professional care of the collection, loan requests-together with a detailed concept paper-are to be submitted at least half a year before the opening date of the exhibition in question.
