Option 1: Coached visit + Workshop (reservation required)
Price: CHF 15 per child
Tour of the temporary exhibition with a coach
- An opportunity to retrace the history of photography through 180 photos, dating from 1843 to the present day. From the first daguerreotypes to digital photos, sports photographers have played a prominent role in the evolution of photography. Whether they feature Olympic Games, team sports, or life off the field of play, their shots freeze the action and present what the naked eye cannot see. Pupils look at the sports photos during the visit and learn the technical vocabulary necessary to understand the image.
- In the studio the pupils learn about the concept of “exposure”. They experiment with short and multiple exposures and try to create their own remarkable images. The aim is to understand the aesthetic and analytical functions of sports images, but also to learn in a fun way about the various graphic possibilities that they offer.
