Catherine Burer, Head of Collections, pays tribute to the "Petrified", the ten sculptures by Carl Bucher that have welcomed our visitors for more than 30 years. These sculptures are now leaving the atrium to return to the calm of the museum's collections and benefit from preventive conservation actions, which have become necessary in order to preserve their integrity.
Discover this week's images and join us on Friday May 29 at 6.30 pm for a conversation about this week's images with our guests Pauline Vermare, Cultural Director, Magnum Photos New York, and Philippe Stoll, Head of Research in Humanitarian Communication, ICRC.
More than ever, the posters of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement remain relevant. A precious tool to better understand the present!
Reopening on June 9th! We look forward to welcoming you.
Pascal Hufschmid shares his story and reveals the genesis of the participatory project imagined in collaboration with Magnum Photos and ... you.
To make sense of the complete changes caused by the pandemic, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum (MICR) is launching “ COVID-19 and Us “, an international participatory project, in partnership with the famous agency Magnum Photos.
Regardless of our walk of life and age, the Covid-19 pandemic has left its mark on all of us. Our experience of this exceptional situation is both individual and collective. To make sense of what happened to us and to build a memory of it for future generations, we invite you to share your story with us.
Our director tells you about the Museum's news, exciting new projects and collaborations and the future reopening of the institution!
This date thus represents an opportunity to familiarize and raise public awareness of the humanitarian principles and values of the Red Cross Movement, as well as to contribute to a message of solidarity.
Originally, the Parc des Bastions in Geneva was to host a popular festival open to all on 8 May. If this event had to be cancelled, its organizers, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the Swiss Red Cross (CRS), the Geneva Red Cross (CRG) and the International Museum of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (MICR), have decided to celebrate this 8 May 2020 by broadcasting short films on social networks.
We have a vast and really beautiful collection of posters at the Museum. They help us to understand what is happening to us all today.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Nathalie, the cashier at my village grocery store, who keeps her smile and good humour despite the current situation.

Today, Pascal Hufschmid talks about an incredible 1870 poster kept in our collections, which tells us so much about solidarity, the acceleration of time and our relation to images.
As part of measures taken by the federal authorities to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum is temporarily closing its doors.
