Alpine Workshops in Bern

The exhibition Alpine Workshop (Werkstatt Alpen) presents people from the Swiss Alps who funnel their creativity and tenacity into producing not only premium products but also fresh perspectives. This is no idealized world, but real, everyday life. What does it mean to manufacture a product by hand in a digitalized and globalized society ? The museum has been transformed into a workshop, incorporating various artisan enterprises from mountain regions which will be presented in person or in pictures and sound. They will provide insights into their experiences and illustrate the real meaning of artisanal trades today.
