The Zürich Aldous Huxley Centre aims to interest young people in reading and thinking out of the box.
It is dedicated to one of the greatest writers and thinkers of the 20th century, and supports the study and teaching of his works, including his best-known novel, Brave New World, widely regarded as one of the 100 most important works of literature ever written.
The Zürich Aldous Huxley Centre currently contains the world’s most significant public exhibition of the complete works of Aldous Huxley and represents Switzerland’s most comprehensive public collection of English literature.
It is proud to be affiliated with the Centre for International Aldous Huxley Studies in Münster, Germany, the world’s leading institution of its kind.
Its collection has been compiled by Robin Hull, one of the curators of the International Aldous Huxley Society, and counts about 400 items, of which two thirds are permanently exhibited at Huxley Hall in Falkenstrasse 28a, 8008 Zurich.
Visitors to this collection will discover British and American first editions of Aldous Huxley’s major works of fiction and non-fiction.
The collection includes works dedicated by Huxley to famous individuals, such as fellow writers like D.H. Lawrence, film producers like George Cukor (My Fair Lady), film stars, painters, and composers.
Some of the works are personal copies of the author or members of the Huxley family.
