GALLERY X ARCHIVE | interior architecture | Fotostiftung Schweiz | 2022

The Fotostiftung Schweiz is embarking on an innovative architectural venture, expanding its premises to incorporate a new exhibition area and an open archive space devoted to the processing, research, and digitization of its collection holdings. Architects Silvia Baumgartner and Simon Husslein seamlessly merged the two zones, creating a striking floor-to-ceiling glass door that provides an unprecedented view into the foundation's inner workings. By showcasing the multiple steps a photograph undergoes from archival storage to public presentation, the installation offers an enlightening behind-the-scenes glimpse into the foundation's conservation and curatorial practices, a novel addition to the exhibition landscape.
