„Prix Mobilière“ – Promoting young Swiss Art
Awarded since 1996 the „Prix Mobilière“ is the oldest sponsorship award for young Swiss art that is presented by a Swiss insurance company.
As a private insurance company that has operated exclusively in Switzerland since it was founded in 1826, Mobiliar has a heartfelt interest in the wellbeing and future of Switzerland. As part of the future-oriented engagement with social values the promotion of art and culture plays a central role – based on the conviction that, with their works, creative artists provide a productive set of tools for positive development of societal processes. For this reason, ever since the 1930s, Mobiliar has collected art, promoted promising art projects, realised exhibitions, and integrated artists into its internal fields of work – in research projects, community projects and innovation projects.
