Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel

Literature and art in dialogue

Did you know that Friedrich Dürrenmatt was not only a renowned writer but also a talented painter? Or that the German-speaking Swiss lived in Neuchâtel for almost 40 years and also died there? You can find out all this and much more at the Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel.

The Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990) won a worldwide reputation for his plays and novels. As well as his writing, Dürrenmatt retained a great passion for drawing and painting throughout his life. The Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel (CDN) showcases the great man’s artworks alongside his literary oeuvre and regularly hosts temporary thematic exhibitions focusing on the works of other artists. These help to contextualise Dürrenmatt’s activities as a writer and painter.
