Telling time at Lausanne’s design museum, mudac, celebrates our quest to give a shape to time.
With more than 130 timepieces from 1550 to today, heritage watches of great value are presented alongside crazy contemporary designs and enter into a dialogue that is thought-provoking, intriguing, awe-inspiring and often amusing.
By watchmakers, but also by artists and designers, in materials as diverse as glass, paper, video and feathers, the selection offers a glimpse into the infinite ways to tell time.
The result is one of the most original exhibitions of the year.
