The gesture of pointing channels the viewer’s attention, forging a connection, a chronology, creating a story by simple but highly effective means. Beatrice Minger has brought together 124 pointing pictures and their captions from the Swiss local and tabloid press to produce a kaleidoscopic portrait of Switzerland. It’s a mosaic of stories about our coexistence, about what moves our nation deep down inside. A panorama of disasters great and small, outrageous incidents, fabled finds, tragic coincidences and painstaking investigations.
