Regards sur les MAH
Insights into Museums of Art and History
Last April, the Museums of Art and History of Geneva (MAH) and iGersGeneva organized a photography contest on the subject of the 4 buildings of the MAH (the Rath Museum, the Maison Tavel, the Graphic Arts Museum / Art and Archeology Library and the Museum of Art and History). Photographers have been invited to post their photographs about those 4 Museums on Instagram, with the idea of highlighting the museum network that these different buildings form.
16 winning photographs have been selected. Printed in
poster format, they are distributed in front of each entrance
of the MAH from June 8 to August 27 and exposed during the
summer in Parc des Bastions (July 6 to 31) and then
to Saint-Antoine promenade (August 1 to 27) .
