5 MUSEUM EXHIBITIONS NOT TO MISS THIS AUTUMN
As the air gets nippier, we start to look for things to do indoors – and what better way to spend your time than to check out the latest varied and rich series of exhibitions at Geneva’s many museums – both private and public.
Some of the highlights include:
WAR AND PEACE at the FONDATION MARTIN BODMER

PAINTING FROM 1950 TO NOWADAYS – MAMCO

From 9th October till 2nd of February 2020.
COMICS – A GENEVAN INVENTION? – BIBLIOTHÉQUE DE GENEVE
Was the Genevan Rodolphe Töpfer the inventor of comics? What are the distinctive features that made it a new genre? The Bibliothéque de Geneve which holds all the works published by this author during his lifetime, journeys to the origins of what is known in French as the ninth art and explores the dynamism of this practice today.

POSTERS UNPACKED – INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS MUSEUM
