The Alpineum Produzentengalerie, which has been in operation since November 2007, was initiated by ten Swiss artists. The gallery contributes actively to Lucerne’s cultural life by offering discourses and debate concerning contemporary art and its practices.

The Alpineum organizes nine exhibitions annually, in which the artistic positions of the founding members, as well as those of invited guest artists from Switzerland and abroad, are shown (the guest program is called “Alpineum Inn”). Activities such as lectures, artist talks, video screenings, and performances—often held in collaboration with other artist-run initiatives—accompany the exhibitions. In addition, a limited edition magazine highlighting the art on view is published with each exhibition. Monthly to bimonthly meetings provide a platform for Alpineum’s members to discuss the gallery’s program, organization, and economic status, as well as to assess its direction.
