Botanica – Fighting fire with… flora?


Since the discovery of the Americas 500 years ago, new and exotic plants have been introduced across the world, causing issues ranging from the environmental to the economic.

The exhibition BOTANICA, hosted by Geneva’s botanical gardens, exposes some of these invasive neophytes, which benefit from climate change to continue their often-disastrous spread, as well as the strategies designed to defeat nature’s formidable foes.

Jean Dubuffet at the MEG – Homecoming of a barbaric visionary


Sculptor, painter and writer Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) was a major figure in the art scene throughout the 20th century. The exhibition “Jean Dubuffet, un barbare en Europe” pays tribute to his body of work, while also highlighting his visit to post-war Switzerland, a defining moment in his development of “l’Art Brut” (raw art).


The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 11h to 18h. Tickets range from CHF 6 to CHF 9.
