Made in Witzerland

What do the Swiss laugh about, and what do others find funny about us? These are just two of the questions raised in the exhibition “Made in Witzerland” on a journey through the world of humour, wit, and satire. The multimedia exhibition takes a differentiated look at the funny side of Switzerland – featuring 19th-century caricatures, modern cartoons, and famed Swiss comedians. There are show clips In the TV lounge from popular Swiss comedy series and movies.

«Made in Witzerland» also addresses everyday humour, Swiss stereotypes and clichés, as well as socially and politically improper jokes. At the same time, it explores differences between male and female humour and looks at how children view and deal with irony and situational humour, all trenchantly presented in a surprising scenography.
