Fri Art’81: an explosive exhibition in the centre of Fribourg
March 1979. 40 years ago, a group of friends met together in Fribourg at the instigation of Michel Ritter, who wanted to take the opportunity of Fribourg’s 500th anniversary as part of the Swiss Confederation to organise a major contemporary art exhibition with the support of the local authorities, the Canton and the Federal Office of Culture. Ritter along with Walter Tschopp, Christoph von Imhoff, Jacques Sidler, Paul Jacquat, Jean Pythoud, Hafis Bertschinger, Charles Descloux, Michel Gremaud and Geneviève Renevey threw themselves into this adventure that would become the first Fri Art event.
