Dominic Nahr

Blind Spots

Blind Spots

20 May – 8 Oct 2017


Dominic Nahr’s photographs are highly estimated in international newsrooms. They unfold their full force, however, in exhibitions. Released from the utility value of reporting on current affairs, their pictorial idiom and deliberate composition shift impressively to the fore. Then the hard facts of international hot spots are just the external scaffold from which to immerse oneself deeply in the life worlds of the people portrayed. Nahr’s images communicate mind-sets and moods whic… more

Unfamiliar Familiarities: Outside Views on Switzerland

Unfamiliar Familiarities: Outside Views on Switzerland

Fremdvertraut. Aussensichten auf die Schweiz

11 Feb – 7 May 2017
Switzerland’s image has been shaped decisively by tourism. It has always been possible to market the country successfully with photographs of spectacular mountain panoramas and rural idylls. Now the national tourism organisation, Switzerland Tourism, is availing itself of its 100th anniversary in 2017 to highlight the connection between travel and photography. Under the direction of the Fotostiftung Schweiz and the Musée de l’Elysée, five internationally famous photogra… more

Thomas Kern

Haiti. The Perpetual Liberation

Haiti. The Perpetual Liberation

Haiti. Die endlose Befreiung

17 Sep 2016 – 29 Jan 2017



Since his first trip to Haiti in 1997 Thomas Kern (*1965) has repeatedly returned there to capture the turbulent history of the former Pearl of the Antilles. Reserved and at the same time close to the people, he documents everyday life in one of the world’s poorest countries in a classical black-and-white. His photographs testify to the great individual efforts made and the tiny joys experienced in a country marked by natural catastrophes, political instability and a creeping ecological… more

Roberto Donetta

Photographer and Seed Salesman from Bleniotal

Photographer and Seed Salesman from Bleniotal

Fotograf und Samenhändler aus dem Bleniotal

28 May – 4 Sep 2016


Roberto Donetta (1865-1932) from Ti­cino is one of Swiss pho­tog­ra­phy’s great out­siders. He man­aged to make a liv­ing as a trav­el­ling pho­tog­ra­pher and seed sales­man, and upon his death left al­most 5,000 glass plates which were pre­served merely by chance. These cap­ture the ar­chaic life of his com­pa­tri­ots in the Valle di Ble­nio, which at the time was to­tally iso­lated, and the gra… more

Barbara Davatz

As Time Goes By, 1972 bis 2014

As Time Goes By, 1972 bis 2014

27 Feb – 16 May 2016


Portraits play a major role in the work of Barbara Davatz (born 1944). For more than 40 years she has repeatedly devoted her attention to the question of how people can be captured and presented by means of a camera. What does a picture say about the person portrayed? Which photographs seem authentic? How much staging is permitted? And when does an image become a projection surface?

Her long-term study entitled "As Time Goes B", which was completed in 2014 and has just recently been… more

On the State of Things / Zum Stand der Dinge

24 Oct 2015 – 14 Feb 2016


The exhibition "Rudolf Lichtsteiner – On the State of Things" at the Fotostiftung Schweiz is the first comprehensive retrospective of works by Rudolf Lichtsteiner (born 1938 in Winterthur). On show will be selected work groups from his archive already preserved at the Fotostiftung Schweiz since 2012. His complete oeuvre encompasses about 1’000 original prints, photo-objects and leporellos covering a time period of 50 years.

Life, a Sport. Jules Decrauzat – A Pioneer of Photo-reportage

Das Leben ein Sport. Jules Decrauzat – Pionier der Fotoreportage

30 May – 11 Oct 2015


A great find: almost 1,250 glass negatives dating from between 1910 and 1925 that had defied the ravages of time in the archive of the Swiss picture agency Keystone. While the quality of those photographs was well known, the circumstances under which they were taken were largely obscure. Now, thanks to thorough research work, a new chapter in the history of Swiss photography can be written: the glass negatives form part of the extensive oeuvre of Jules Decrauzat (1879-1960), who was born in Bi… more

War without War

War without War

Krieg ohne Krieg

7 Mar – 17 May 2015


Meinrad Schade (born 1968) has been working for over ten years on a long-term project entitled "Before, alongside and after the war". He has travelled parts of today’s Russia and of the states of the former Soviet Union, such as the republics of Chechnya and Ingushetia, Kazakhstan, Nagorno-Karabakh and the Ukraine, with the aim of engaging with former, still smouldering and perhaps re-erupting conflicts through detailed reportages. Compassionate, yet incorruptible and precise, … more

In the Jungle of the Big City / Im Dickicht der Grossstadt

Photographs and Films 1932 – 1959

24 Oct 2014 – 22 Feb 2015


The Swiss film-maker and photographer Rudy Burckhardt (1914-1999) settled in New York in 1935. Overwhelmed by the sheer size of the metropolis, by the contrast between the monumental skyscrapers and the hustle and bustle on the streets down below, he began to process his impressions in photographs and films.

A reserved man, he initially devoted his attention to details of facades and to striking advertising texts and graphic signs of all kinds. Later he observed the passers-by and also docum… more

1914/18 – Bilder von der Grenze

Pictures from the Border

7 Jun – 12 Oct 2014




The First World War not only gave rise to a new kind of devastating war machinery and heretofore unknown means of mass destruction, it was also the first war in which modern mass media and visual communication (film and photography) played a major part. Although photoreportage of the kind familiar to us from the Second World War was not yet so highly developed, a wealth of photographic evidence still exists, proving direct and lively insight into everyday military and civilian life, as well … more

1914/18 - The Way of the Cross

7 Jun – 12 Oct 2014

As a counterpart to the exhibition of photo postcards dating from 1914—1918 entitled “Pictures from the Border”, the Fotostiftung Schweiz is presenting an installation of large works by Stephan Schenk in which the artist questions the very possibility of depicting the catastrophe of the First World War — which cost more than eight million soldiers and seven million civilians their lives. “The Way of the Cross”, a work done over the past three years, is based … more

So Near, Yet So Far

So Near, Yet So Far

So nah, so fern

8 Mar – 25 May 2014



Iren Stehli (born 1953) established her reputation with photographic essays from the Czech Republic. Over a period of decades she accompanied Libuna, a Roma woman living in Prague, through the ups and downs of life. The result is a unique long-term study during which the photographer not only maintained the stance of an objective observer, but also became a friend and confidante. In addition to that “work of a lifetime”, Iren Stehli has undertaken many other projects since 1974. T… more

A Retrospective Exhibition / Retrospektive

7 Sep 2013 – 23 Feb 2014



Emil Schulthess (1913-1996) is one of the classics of post-war Swiss photography, whose monumental illustrated volumes on Africa, China or the Soviet Union became international bestsellers. Schulthess gained fame in the 1970s as the inventor of the aerial panorama. The sun is ever-present in Emil Schulthess’s oeuvre – the very sight of it elicited his astonishment no matter where in the world he was. His most famous work is a 24-hour colour panorama of the midnight sun which he to… more
