Studio Naegeli, located in the historic Chalet Naegeli in Gstaad, is a gallery for contemporary art, an artist's residence and photo archive of Gstaad photographer Jacques Naegeli (1885 - 1971).


The gallery presents exhibitions, talks and other events. Our focus is on visual art, but we are also interested in the interfaces between art and design, art and architecture, and art and science. With our program we want to bridge the gap between local and global as well as between tradition and innovative, diverse art making. The House of the Photographer should be enlivened by art and welcome both the local community and international guests.

Naegeli Archive

As the copyright holder, we manage the estate of Jacques Naegeli. Part of the work is made available in book form: "Welt & Gstaad". The book was published in 2014 by Suzanne Potterat and Christian Högl in collaboration with the "Museum Saanen". Accompanying the book was a short film and a museum exhibition. In the exhibition, photos, films as well as historical photography equipment were shown to the public. The visitors got exciting insights into the history of the region and the travel stops of the photographer. The Naegeli estate with its extensive fund of original photographs is further being processed in cooperation with the Swiss National Library.


A few times a year, Studio Naegeli will offer a residency to invited artists. Here, surrounded by the impressive alpine scenery and unique spirit of the mountain village, artists can work on their artistic research and create new art pieces. The art works made during the residency period will be presented in a final show.
