On June 1st, Uli Sigg – entrepreneur, diplomat and art collector – will give a lecture at ZHdK. Not only that Sigg founded the first joint venture between the People’s Republic of China and a Western company; furthermore he served as Swiss ambassador in Beijing from 1995 to 1998. An acknowledged expert on China, Sigg enjoys a particular reputation as a collector of Chinese contemporary art.
The collector, who compiled one of the most important collections on Chinese contemporary art, will talk about his cooperation with M+, Asia’s first museum for visual culture and with some of the most important Western museums.
