Swiss National Museum Photography and Graphic Art Collections

Project completed
Museums & the Public

The Swiss National Museum is making previously unknown photographic documents and graphic works available to the public.

Since 2013, the photography and graphic art collections of the Swiss National Museum have been systematically processed, indexed and made available to the public. Exhibitions offering a first look at this comprehensive collection include “Gut zum Druck. Kunst und Werbung bei Wolfensberger” (2013/2014) and “Work. Photographs 1860–2015” (2015/2016). Starting in 2016, a selection of the exhibits will be permanently available to researchers in the Swiss National Museum’s new Study Centre.
