2016 Program

December 10, 2015

Prix Elysée 2016, Werner Bischof, Anonymats d’aujourd’hui, Augustin Rebetez, La Mémoire du futur, Steeve Iuncker, la Nuit des images, Wojciech Zamecznick, Martin Kollar : discover the Musée de l'Elysée 2016 program.

2016 will mark an important turning point in our artistic program. From now on, the accent will be on the heart of the museum – its exceptional collection, one of the largest in Europe. Thus, in January 2016, in parallel to the monograph exhibition celebrating the centenary of Werner Bischof’s birth and focusing on his Swiss years, the exhibition Anonymats d’aujourd’hui, petite grammaire photographique de la vie urbaine will present works exclusively from our Collections and Archives.

With the Pôle muséal, we will also be present at artgenève with an installation by the Swiss artist Augustin Rebetez, which we recommend you go and see from January 28th to 31st. We are also delighted to announce the second Prix Elysée for mid-career photographers, for which applications should be submitted from January 4th to February 26th. The exhibition of Swiss photographer Werner Bischof will also be the opportunity for the museum to launch its first “Collection - Musée de l’Elysée” in partnership with the Lausanne publishers Noir sur Blanc.
