Important information


The Federal Council has decided on successive preventive measures against the coronavirus since February 2020. We have been following them dutifully. We have reopened on 13 May. We are making the necessary adjustments to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors. You can read about the safety measures in French or German.

While we were happy to extend our Winter exhibition until 14 June, the following events planned for May 2020 nevertheless have to be postponed to May 2021: Photobooks Switzerland & Biel/Bienne Festival of Photography.

We are happy to announce the start of our Summer exhibition on 4 July as scheduled (though without an opening) and that our art education activities and school workshops are taking place again.

We thank you for your understanding and support!
