This exhibition surveys recent work by artists, illustrators and designers working in Switzerland, including 30 works created in Basel, Bern, Kriens, Lausanne and Zurich.

As a country where diverse traditions and cultures meet and interact. Switzerland has always been a melting pot in the heart of Europe. This is why the visual arts in cosmopolitan Switzerland display such enormous variety. There is no such thing as ‘typically Swiss art’. There is a clear and repeated focus on the Alps as a living environment. The tendency to be modest is also a recurrent theme.

By and large, printmaking in Switzerland is just as diverse as the country itself. Few countries of this size can boast an arts scene that has attracted international attention, admiration and imitation over such a long period.
