Friends’ Association Fotomuseum Winterthur

Fotomuseum is one of the most renowned photography institutions in the world. However, it is unusual in that approximately one third of its annual budget is funded from the public purse. With around 2,500 members, the Friends’ Association Fotomuseum Winterthur is one of its most important supporters. It aids Fotomuseum’s Foundation and helps sustain the Museum financially and socially.

The Board manages the Friends’ Association and uses its experience and extensive network to support the Museum:

Tina Aich (President)
Petra Koerfer (Vice-President)
Philipp Brunnschweiler
Georgina Casparis
Mondira Spiller-Tenti
