Welcome to the Emma Kunz Centre


The Emma Kunz Centre is situated at the source of AION A, in the Roman Quarries of Würenlos. It was founded in 1986 by Anton C. Meier (1936-2017) in order to preserve the findings of Emma Kunz, the results of her research and the collection of her works of art for posterity. A further aim was to extract the healing rock, AION A, which Emma Kunz had discovered and to make it available to mankind. Thus, her innermost desire was fulfilled that a meeting place should be established at the very source of her power where cultural, intellectual and healing works could be brought together.


In the meantime, the Museum and the Grotto have become a desirable aim for visitors whether as individuals or in groups or in associations.


Medically qualified and interested laymen may attend day seminars at the Emma Kunz Centre. In addition guided tours for groups are available.


Anyone who enter the Emma Kunz Centre immediately notices a profound feeling of peace and quiet. It is as if one leaves behind at the entrance the worldly, weighty and worrying problems of hectic everyday life, in order to immerse oneself in the sphere of a subtly working, intellectual power.

«May this place of strength become a meeting place where

cultural, spiritual and healing accomplishments come together.»   Emma Kunz

Kunsthalle Ziegelhütte Appenzell - 26 April 2020 - 25 October 2020

Exhibition "Emma Kunz und Gegenwartskunst"

Emma Kunz exhibition in Appenzell, Switzerland.

Para Site Hong Kong and Kathmandu Triennale nepal

Exhibition "Garden of Six Seasons" - May until November 2020

Emma Kunz’s work will appear in a two-venue large-scale group exhibition as a result of the partnership between the Kathmandu Triennale and Para Site Hong Kong. Her work will first appear at Garden of Six Seasons in Para Site, and then travel to Kathmandu.

Garden of Six Seasons, a precursor to the 2020 Kathmandu Triennale, is interested in the image- and object-making lineages that transversed or unfolded in parallel to the fractures of the modern. It will discuss appropriate frameworks of understanding and bringing together these multiple aesthetic and cosmological lineages that are active today, from paubha painting in Nepal to ink in East Asia and barkcloth in the Pacific, as well as to other languages marginalised by a Eurocentric cannon. These explorations of vocabularies of representation will also include a genealogy of map-making, from the depiction of the whole universe to the inner human body, instruments for navigating the earth and healing the body (Text prohelvetia).

Aargauer Kunsthaus - Solo Exhibition Emma Kunz "Kosmos"

5 September 2020 until 3 January 2021

The fascination of Emma Kunz (1892–1963) has never been greater than it is today. At the same venue where her work was discovered for art, the oeuvre of the Aargau researcher, healer and artist is now presented alongside contemporary artistic practises. The latter reflect on Kunz’ work or particular topics related to her field of activity.


Living a secluded life far removed from the art scene, Emma Kunz already exemplified eighty years ago what in today’s art is taken for granted: an expanded concept of art which rejects the question of art or non-art and, instead, incorporates a wide range of fields (of activity): research, medicine, nature, as well as the supernatural, magical, animistic and visionary. The dialogue presented in the Exhibition examines the appeal of Emma Kunz works in the twenty-first century art.
