In 2005, the Hilti Art Foundation was opened in Vaduz as an annex to the Liechtenstein Museum located there. It is home to the art collection of the Hilti family and includes works from classical modernism to current art trends.
In close collaboration with Uwe Wieczorek – the curator of the collection and the exhibitions – four publications have been produced so far, including the comprehensive collection catalogue in 2 volumes in 2019/20. A particular challenge was the alternating use of coated paper (illustrations of works) and uncoated paper (texts). For a small part of the edition, a high-quality slipcase was also made by hand.
For covers and interior, designer Kurt Dornig paired Jost Hochuli’s Allegra – used in particular for volume 2, Art from 1950 to the Present – with Novel by Christoph Dunst.
That’s what I call – felicitous!
