A portrait of work


Work is not the same today as it was 150 years ago. It is not just the activities that have changed; the social importance of work and the relationship between employers and employees has also altered. Photographs of people at work taken between 1860 and 2015 are currently on show at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich. They impressively document the changes in the world of work and people’s relationship with their jobs.

The exhibition at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich runs until 31 January 2016. Limmat-Verlag has published a book on the exhibition entitled “Arbeit – le travail”; 224 pages containing various articles and 218 photographs; CHF 48, Euro 52.,
