We cordially invite you and your friends to the opening of the exhibition «Au revoir à Chly Paris» on

Sunday, 29 September 2019, 11.30am

The new exhibition centers around a fictitious conversation held in October 1939 between the two manufacturers Johann Rudolf Isler (1885–1943) and Iwan Bally (1876–1965). The National Exhibition in Zurich, which has just come to an end, and the concern about the recent outbreak of World War II are just as much a part of the presentation as are the hat-making industry or the Bally shoe manufacturing business.
