Change of Management

After around two years of positive and enriching collaboration, Duscha Kistler has decided to relinquish the management of the Sitterwerk Foundation at the end of the year. Her decision is based on her desire to develop herself further professionally and is taking place with high regard for the Sitterwerk and its staff. We very much regret this decision, thank Duscha Kistler for her successful and spirited engagement, and wish her every success with her future endeavors.

We are pleased at the same time to have found a suitable successor for her with Patricia Hartmann. The native of Graubünden studied art history at the University of Zurich and University of Bern and already has in-depth knowledge about the Sitterwerk from her time as assistant to the director in the neighboring Kunstgiesserei St.Gallen. Patricia Hartmann worked at the Galerie Francesca Pia in Zurich for four years and as an academic assistant at the Bundesamt für Kultur (Federal Office of Culture), and has managed the exhibition of the «Swiss Art Awards» in 2017 and 2018. She has a broad network in Switzerland and internationally and is very knowledgeable about happenings in contemporary art. We very much look forward to our shared start in the New Year and to our future collaboration.
