Art

Over 200 contemporary works of art form part of the staff’s ordinary environment. At Ringier, art is not just a decoration, and it’s much more than a passion of our publisher Michael Ringier.

“I go into a gallery with the intention of looking at art, so I prepare myself quite consciously for a particular situation. In a company, it’s different, and I hope that the art just becomes part of people’s ordinary life. That has quite a different effect – it’s just there.

It stands there – it just hangs on the wall and affects people’s perception very discreetly. I can imagine that the effect of the art – in the way that we show it – is even more profound than when you go into a gallery.

Journalism and art both pose questions, both awaken emotions. They polemicise, they polarise, and perhaps their most significant common factor is that both have to be highly intelligent. Art poses questions, journalism poses questions – only thus do we have any chance of getting fresh answers.

Even more important, maybe, is that we let ourselves make subjective decisions about art. Art deals in emotions; art deals in uncertainty. Actually, when we make decisions about art, we act exactly the same as for business decisions. Getting involved with art is a kind of training for making decisions in business."
