Lake Geneva has this mysterious thing about it: it is from its waters that the myths of the modern vampire and the creature of Dr. Frankenstein emerged... Until 19 March, the Rath Museum is celebrating the bicentenary of the "year without summer" that gave birth to these legendary figures. Based on the novels of Mary Shelley and John Polidori and the poem by Lord Byron Darkness, the exhibition revisits the historical and social context of these fictions and their impact on Gothic culture from the 19th to the 21st century. Between art and literature, we discover gothic themes in the work of a hundred or so international artists and writers
Entrance 9,5 and 14€
