Schools - Experience - Fotomuseum Winterthur

SCHOOLS

In cooperation with Fotostiftung Schweiz, Fotomuseum Winterthur runs a varied educational programme for school classes of all ages. We invite our young visitors to take a photographic journey and discover the world of images, ranging from practical experience with photography as a medium and discussions on the photographic to a more thorough insight into the exhibitions. The programme comprises workshops in the analogue photo laboratory or on exhibition-specific topics and the history of photography, as well as dialogue-based tours through the current exhibitions. On request, we are also happy to hold project weeks on photographic topics.

Fotomuseum Winterthur is further extending its education activities, with a strong focus on image and media competence offered by workshops and dialogue-based guided tours through SITUATIONS, an ongoing exhibition format devoted to the latest developments in photographic culture.
