Redevelopment Project

Groundbreaking Ceremony

The official groundbreaking ceremony on 17 July 2023 marks the beginning of Fotomuseum Winterthur’s new building and renovation project. The project will remedy structural deficiencies relating to climate control, security and fire protection, while at the same time creating space in which to present contemporary photography and new, experimental exhibition and event formats.
