Workers' housing, the Iron Library, potato farming and, most recently, "design thinking": in the century since GF purchased Klostergut Paradies in 1918, the former Poor Clares' convent has served all sorts of purposes. The Corporate Archive also found a home here as of 1948. Since 1974, the landmarked convent building has been used mainly as the GF training center.
The centenary exhibition with photographs from the Corporate Archive tells the hundred-year history of GF at Klostergut Paradies and brings to life industry in Schaffhausen in the 20th century.
The exhibition is divided into three thematic sections:
- Vigorous Convent: Klostergut Paradies from A to Z
- Vigorous Convent: The World Visits GF at Klostergut Paradies
- Vibrant Industry: Visualizing the Corporate Archive of Georg Fischer Ltd
The exhibition at Klostergut Paradies runs from 19 March to 12 November 2018 and is open to the public once every month. We are offering guided tours for groups upon prior arrangement.
