In 2021 we celebrate the centenary of Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza. And what better way to do that than by sharing the testimonies of the many individuals who helped him to assemble, study and promote his exceptional collection? That is precisely what we plan to do at this international symposium, the most ambitious survey of the baron’s facet as a collector organised to date. Our guest speakers include conservators, restorers, historians, lawyers and architects who worked side by side with Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, as well as prestigious international scholars of his exemplary collecting efforts. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about the creator of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection and founder of our museum from some of the people who knew him best.
