The Imperfect Atlas, 2014. © Peter Funch
Alt. +1000 photo festival in Switzerland is renowned for exhibitions of contemporary photography with mountain themes. Whether by climbing mountains, building roads and parking lots, planting a cross, or working the steep land, humans have left their mark on the landscape for centuries and this footprint is at the centre of the fifth edition of the Alt. +1000 festival.
WARNING SIGNS by Project Pressure will be exhibited in and around Lake Taillères, the centre of the “Siberia of Switzerland”. The exhibition consists of nearly 80 images – a combination of stunning artworks and an informative poster campaign visualizing the climate crisis in an inspiring way. The event offers art and nature lovers, as well as families, a photographic stroll through a remarkable landscape.
In addition to Lake Taillères, the festival takes place at two other magnificent sites – the Grand-Cachot-de-Vent farm and the Musée des beaux-arts Le Locle (MBAL) where visitors can enjoy 80 years of mountain images by Magnum photographers, as well as a solo exhibition by Project Pressure collaborator Noémie Goudal among other works.
