Woodchips fly through the air, accompanied by pounding, buzzing, and whizzing sounds. The exhibition “Alpine Workshop” presents people from the Swiss Alps who use local materials to produce unique products. This is no idealized world, but rather real, everyday life: what does it mean to manufacture a product by hand in a digitalized and globalized society?
The museum will transform itself into a workshop for the duration of the exhibition, incorporating various artisan businesses from mountain regions. In the shingle workshop, for example, 1500 kilos of wood are waiting to be turned into shingles by visitors.
How much “handicraft” remains in modern artisanship – in skis, shoes, or cheese?
