The Museum's Gardens : A collaboration with EPFL’s ALICE laboratory
Summer and Autumn 2022

From 31 May 2022

Summer is all about spending time in the garden. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum is embracing the great outdoors too, as it continues its transformation into a hub serving the local community. With The Museum’s Gardens, works by more than 100 architecture students from the ALICE laboratory at EPFL will go on display in the Museum’s gardens and public areas. The eight wooden installations will give families, employees, local residents and passers-by a chance to explore and experience the site in a different light. Please join us!

"Who cares ? Gender and humanitarian action"
| On view at the Museum

31.05.2022 - 9.10.2022

Design by Atelier Cocchi, Photography by Zoé Aubry

By presenting a broad selection of objects and little-known accounts spanning more than a century, Who Cares? Gender and humanitarian action invites visitors to take a fresh look at the history of humanitarian action and how it is represented today. Rigid gender roles are commonplace, with men associated with action and leadership while women supply compassion and care. Yet those stereotypes are belied across time by the complexity of humanitarian work and the experience of those engaged in it.
