Max Frisch-Archive

For research on the life and work of the famous author and ETH alumnus

The Max Frisch Archive, based at the ETH Library, curates and adds to the literary legacy of the famous author, architect and ETH alumnus Max Frisch.

To make research on new topics related to Max Frisch possible with the aid of valuable original documents, and to make his complete works more comprehensive, we are currently looking for funding partners for the following projects:

  • Max Frisch Scholarships: To promote research using the archive’s holdings on an international level, three scholarships will be awarded each year to researchers and culture professionals from abroad whose research is centred around Frisch’s works.


  • The digital publication of Max Frisch’s notebooks: The handwritten notes, which are sometimes hard to decipher, need to be transcribed, enriched with metadata and made freely accessible online.

"It is a rare, albeit overdue fortune to be able to approach Frisch's think tank so closely. One wishes that the blue notebooks would soon be given even more space."
