Event Language French, English

Since the 1970s, the Genevan thinker André Corboz has been questioning notions of landscape, city and heritage in the polycentric, urbanised territory of Switzerland, which is undergoing spectacular spatial change. 

The exhibition immerses visitors in the intellectual laboratory and multiple works of André Corboz, offering an overview of his oeuvre. Through sketchbooks, photographs and graphic documents, it sheds light on Corboz’s working methods and reveals the topicality of his narrative strategies and his activities as a cultural critic, writer and teacher.
