To the attention of the artists and photographers

The Photoforum Pasquart plans its exhibition programme two years in advance and is unfortunately usually unable to respond favourably to the numerous exhibition proposals it receives.

If you want to send us your portfolio, please send it in pdf format at Please do not send us original prints. We do not send back print portfolios and books unless a pre-stamped enveloped is sent with the portfolio. The books are considered donations for our library. As we are not a museum and do not have a collection, we are unable to accept donations of prints.

Swiss and Switzerland-based photographers are invited to participate in the Prix Photoforum, which takes place every year.

Visitors with reduced mobility

The Pasquart is accessible to people with reduced mobility. The foyer and temporary exhibitions are wheelchair accessible. 
A wheelchair toilet is available on the first floor of the museum.
