Monique Burger started the Burger Collection in the late 1990s, following a successful career in private banking and headhunting in Switzerland and Germany. Her key concerns for the collection are to cultivate artistic dialogue, assume responsibility for the works of the collection, conserve the collection, and promote a vision for the future of the collection. The Burger Collection went public for the first time in 2009 with a group show in Berlin, the first chapter of a multi-part project involving shows in different cities. In 2005 she and her husband moved to Hong Kong, where they now live and work. They are patrons and supporters of many different institutions and museums.
