Ideas of Switzerland – What binds a community together? Initially one might assume it is to do with having the same language, external enemies or economic interests. However, something generally precedes all that: common ideas that are passed down from generation to generation and that shape the development of the community. These ideas lend a distinctiveness to the collective and eventually form the foundation of a national identity.For the exhibition, we have selected works by four authors whose ideas contributed to creating the image of contemporary Switzerland: Henri Dunant, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Jean Calvin and Petermann Etterlin.
