The photographs by Walter Rutishauser (1940–2017) capture a chapter in the history of Swiss political history. Walter ‘Ruti’ Rutishauser worked for many decades as a press photographer in the Federal Palace in Bern.

The exhibition at the Library am Guisanplatz BiG casts light on Rutishauser’s photographic work through a selection of pictures, including some black-and-white photos not previously exhibited. Taking a look through the photographer’s lens, we present highlights from the 1960s through to the 1990s.

You are invited to attend the exhibition opening on 12 May 2022 at 5pm.

  • Daniel Kohler, Head, Library am Guisanplatz (BiG), will give the welcome address
  • Dr Oswald Sigg, former Federal Council spokesperson, will give the address: Photographer by chance
  • Mathias Kobel, BiG exhibition curator, will introduce the exhibition
