Watching the Glacier Go
Collection in Focus
Mountains and glaciers form the Swiss landscape and the culture of the country. It is therefore not surprising that this motif plays a significant role in art.
The focus of the collection follows the thematic core—from the mountain paintings by Caspar Wolf to mountain sunsets by Ingeborg Lüscher and the iceberg and glacier photographs by Julian Charrière. Today, the mountain is perceived both as a tourist destination and as a symbol for climate change.
The presentation is part of the exhibition project across Switzerland, Schau, wie der Gletscher schwindet (Watching the Glacier Go).
