Swiss Cultural Events in November (Shanghai)

by swisscham in General Interest

SwissCham, Swissnex and the Consulate General of Switzerland are delighted to invite you to look back, the time of an evening, at the early days of Swiss citizens in Shanghai and at their activities. Ms. Bao Zhong, librarian at Shanghai Library, will present the findings of her study about Swiss living in “Vieux Shanghai”, mainly based on the examination of press releases of that time. Thereafter, Mr. Daniel Nerlich will introduce you to the work of Walter Bosshard and offer you a glimpse of historical pictures and film sequences, partly unpublished until today. Swiss pioneer of modern photojournalism, Bosshard e.g. has been the first European, in 1938, to interview and film Mao Zedong in Yan’an. During a martial phase, with radical changes in Shanghai and in the whole country, he coined the notion of China in the West through his media coverage.
