"Hodler//Parallelism" at Kunstmuseum Bern

Credit Suisse has been a partner of Kunstmuseum Bern since 1996 and is now sending you an invitation to this unique exhibition to wish you a happy St. Nicholas' Day and a reflective Advent.

The ticket campaign is valid only on December 6, 2018, while supplies last. Tickets can be obtained in the form of vouchers from the Credit Suisse branch at Bern Bundesplatz during regular opening hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Each person may receive a maximum of two vouchers for the "Hodler//Parallelism" exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bern in exchange for a completed form. The vouchers are valid until January 13, 2019. The offer is open to all natural persons aged 14 or over domiciled in Switzerland. Employees of all companies belonging to Credit Suisse Group AG are excluded. Receipt of the tickets is not subject to the conclusion of a legal transaction. A cash payout of the tickets is excluded.


To mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Ferdinand Hodler, Kunstmuseum Bern and the Musées d'art et histoire de Genève are presenting the "Hodler//Parallelism" exhibition showing the artist's theory of parallelism in his work. He sought to depict the order and structures inherent in nature through composition techniques such as symmetry, reflection, and repetition.

We are pleased and proud of the fact that the long-standing partnership between Credit Suisse and Kunstmuseum Bern is helping to facilitate unusual exhibitions such as this. We hope that all visitors will gain some interesting insights that will perhaps bring to light some previously undiscovered parallels in the work of the famous Swiss painter Ferdinand Hodler.
