Children in Suisse Art

Musée d'Art et d'Histoire, Geneva

This exhibition recounts the evolution of depictions of children in Swiss art between 1830 and 1930. From the 18th century onwards, children started to be recognised as human beings in their own right. They were suddenly allowed into the circle of social, moral and political concerns. Their needs, peculiarities, education, health and hygiene became topics of consideration for philosophers, biologists and doctors alike. The theme peaked in the 19th century, both in literature, and in the visual arts.

Pedro Reyes. Return to Sender

Affiche Tinguely Museum Basel

Pedro Reyes (1972) lives and works in Mexico City. He uses architecture, sculpture, video, performance, and participation to promote collective and individual power of action in political, social, ecological, and educational situations. His projects take place in the research field between a socially shaped understanding of architecture, the sensual and symbolic dimension of sculpture, and a political stance.

Ticks in Switzerland

Affiche: Bündner Naturmuseum Chur

There are over 900 species of ticks worldwide and they have one thing in common: they suck blood to reproduce and develop. In extreme cases they can be attached to an animal or human for up to nine days to suck its blood. They can also transmit pathogens to humans. Where are the risk areas for infections in Switzerland and how can you protect yourself against tick bites? Answers to these and other questions are provided by the new display case on the first floor of the museum
