Important information


The Federal Council has decided on successive preventive measures against the coronavirus since February 2020. We have been following them dutifully. We are closed until 13 May and our current exhibition, Her Take, will be extended from 13 May to 14 June 2020. We will be 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 look forward to reopening to the public, the following events planned for May 2020 nevertheless have to be postponed to May 2021: Photobooks Switzerland & Biel/Bienne Festival of Photography.

We are planning on opening the Summer exhibition on 4 July as scheduled, though the modalities of the accompanying events are not yet known. The possibilities of reopening our art education programme from 11 May (when the schools will reopen) are currently being examined.

We thank you for your understanding and support!
