Episode 55: Nadine Wietlisbach is the director of Fotomuseum Winterthur. She joined the museum in 2018 and has been working tirelessly to continue the museum’s legacy, while also developing new programs that speak more succinctly to the times in which we live creating a larger discussion around themes of inclusion amongst other important topics.

Nadine is also a curator and is well-versed both in the exhibition side of the museum as well as understanding its collection and history in the greater scheme of photography at present. Her fresh approach to the museums holdings and to its outreach will be pivotal to the future of the museum.

In our conversation we discussed a number of topics related to Nadine and her background, but the majority of the discussion was about her work at the museum. We spoke about collection management and new acquisitions as well as upcoming exhibitions and how her role will function in the running of programs while also dealing with the less exciting aspects of running a museum such as funding etc.

Fotomuseum Winterthur: Situations Cluster „The Right to Look“ vom 29.02 bis 01.06.2020

I enjoyed the conversation. Fotomuseum Winterthur is one of the most important spaces devoted to photography over the past 30 years. Its programming has always been on the cutting edge side and its presence is heavily felt int he world of photography. I would suggest that its collection and management are crucial to the world of Contemporary photography and Nadine’s role will be seen as critically important to its ongoing excellence.
