MUSEUM FOR LIFE STORIES
The Museum for Life Stories is part of the retirement home Hof Speicher in Switzerland. The museum was an idea by Artist Hans Ruedi Fricker. Together with the staff of the retirement home they collect the life stories of its residents and locals – ordinary people of all education and social background.
