Watch the glacier disappear

The presentation is part of the Switzerland-wide exhibition project "Schau, wie der Gletscher schwindet".

Mountains and glaciers characterize the Swiss landscape and the country's culture. It is therefore not surprising that this motif is of great importance in art.

The focus of the collection explores this thematic focus: from Caspar Wolf's mountain paintings and Ingeborg Lüscher's mountain sunsets to Julian Charrière's iceberg and glacier photographs. Today, the mountain is perceived both as a tourist destination and as a symbol of climate change.

The presentation is part of the Switzerland-wide exhibition project Schau, wie der Gletscher schwindet.
