The Sitterwerk Catalogue with New Functions

You can now access our online catalogue with subtle, but significant improvements. At, you continue to find the search mask for doing research in the collections of the Material Archive and the Art Library, but the search is now more dynamic and the link to effective space in the Sitterwerk more direct. Books and materials relating to a search query are all shown in an overview on the shelves and in the drawer cabinets so that you can always understand how thematic fields are formed.

One important addition in the new catalogue is the integrated search function for compilations, i.e. the specific book and material research that has been recorded by previous visitors to the Sitterwerk. So, browse our collections at your pleasure, explore what books are located on the shelves with just a few clicks of the mouse, and follow what is developed and documented on site on the Werkbank (workbench), our analogue-digital tabletop. We look forward to your feedback!

The re-launch of the Sitterwerk catalogue was developed in collaboration with István Scheibler (Grafikstudio István Scheibler) and Fabrice Tereszkiewicz (51st Floor GmbH). Heartfelt thanks also goes to the Stiftung zur Förderung der Denkmalpflege, the Gesellschaft Pro Vadiana, and the Jubiläumsstiftung der Schweizerischen Mobiliar for their generous support.
