Some go to Davos to think great thoughts. Some go to mingle and network. Some go to give or get answers to intractable problems.

Me?

Sure I’m here for the work – Reuters news is deeply involved in coverage with live TV every morning and a team of specialist journalists digging for scoops; I’m also moderating a couple of panels on Asian Innovation and on Brazil’s potential and participating in a further one on collaboration.

But forget all that, and the cocktail parties and the networking with other members of the International Media Council.

What I like is the art.

For me, Davos’s hidden gem is the Kirchner Museum.

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (May 6, 1880 – June 15, 1938) was a key early figure in Expressionism and settled in the mountains of Davos after suffering a nervous breakdown in World War I.

The current exhibit at the museum on Kirchner’s late works strikes me as particularly appropriate for this post-financial crisis world.
