Following Les Suisses morts, the show Christian Boltanski (*1944) mounted at the museum in 1993, MCBA acquired several pieces by the French artist as well as a number of artist’s books, which make up a significant part of his body of work. Donations and long-term loans have since expanded that initial collection; the result is a fine selection of works from the years 1985-1996 whose central theme is “the cult of the dead, the living and the dead to come.”
