Alpines Museum der Schweiz

Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains are only a stone’s throw from Bern. The only place being closer to the mountains is the Swiss Alpine Museum (alps). The unique site presents home exhibitions on current mountain issues from all over the world in an unconventional way. They are complemented by the experimental bivouac, the museum’s shop and the alpine cuisine at the in-house restaurant of «las alps».

Let's Talk about Mountains

-
North and South Korea are divided in many respects, but what they have in common are the mountains of the Korean Peninsula. The project “Let’s Talk About Mountains” utilizes mountains to open doors, provide access, and create a bridge towards rapprochement and understanding. At its heart is a journey through North Korea in film, taking a sidelong glance at South Korea and the relationship between the two Koreas.

Biwak#28 Hunting: The Art of the Chase

-
Hunting is a tangible activity, as this exhibition shows. The focus is placed on what today’s hunters actually do: What motivates them? What relationship do they have to their quarry? What skills are needed to cut up the animal and prepare the meat? And is hunting still an acceptable practice today?
