Political posters Fear of communists – fear of foreigners

The issue of immigration has been on the agenda of Swiss politics regularly over the past decade. But a political manifesto in 1919 already claimed Switzerland exclusively for the Swiss.

A series of political posters illustrates the delicate balance between defending the Swiss identity, national security and a policy of xenophobic segregation. The way foreigners or political trends were perceived during vote campaigns helped shape and confirm the national identity.

The posters presented here are part of an outdoor exhibition in Neuchâtel.
