The new centenary jubilee exhibition of the Swiss Society of Graphical Art (Schweizerische Graphische Gesellschaft) focuses on crucial turning points in the history of the Society, presenting works that have marked a new departure and have, at times, caused controversy. The ETH Zürich‘s Collection of Prints and Drawings is marking a centenary of patronage devoted to the art of the print and examines the selection criteria applied by the society. In six chapters, the exhibition charts the most notable turning points.
