Gone are the days when, as Orson Welles asked in the film «The Third Man»:«What did the Swiss achieve who didn’t fight in the war? Cuckoo clocks?» In fact, Swiss artists have made their presence strongly felt in modern art trends, as is only too evident in this coming exhibition which is awaited with great interest.
