opening hours from Wednesday to Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m.
and by appointment


With Standing Still / Travellig Slowly, her first exhibition for 2003, Marianne Müller invites us to share in the round-the-world trip she carried out in 2001and 2002 for the Mondial club of Yverdon, within the framework of the Swiss national exhibition Expo '02. Although mainly known for her photographic work, this time she takes us on a film discovery of Azerbaidjan, India, Jamaica, Mali, Morocco, Mexico, Rumania, Syria, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and mythical Zanzibar.

The Mondial's programming, conceived by Martin Hess, was subdivided into two-week periods, each period being devoted to one country, thus enabling us to discover the four corners of the world through concerts, films and culinary specialities. attitudes has decided to give exclusive emphasis to Marianne Müller's work on this marvelous project. The films, lasting over 20 hours in all, consist of a series of fixed and panoramic views of urban landscapes. For this purpose Marianne Müller has used two cameras, slightly set off from one another, so that her "panoramas" show a lack of time-space where they converge. Contrasting with continually moving pictures, she will occupy our entrance space with quantities of small photographs taken during her trips..
