Fotomuseum Winterthur is an international museum. It sees itself as a vibrant space for exhibitions, education and collection, dedicated to the presentation and discourse on photography and images related to photography.

Founded in 1993, Fotomuseum Winterthur sees photography as an art form as well as a documentation of reality. It presents perspectives on photography through monographic and theme-oriented exhibitions, symposia, exhibition tours, and lectures, as well as the blog Still Searching – An Online Discourse on Photography and Plat(t)form. In addition, it hosts a comprehensive collection which is publicly accessible on its homepage.

The Directors are responsible for the exhibition, education and event programs as well as the operational management of the museum. The precise areas of responsibility for both Co-Directors will be defined accordingly.

In the position of Co-Director we seek someone of the younger generation. Candidates should be particularly knowledgeable in the history of photography as well as contemporary international photography and art. Candidates should have completed art college or university studies and have proven experience in organization and project management. They should be well versed in current forms of communication and new media, and display an aptitude for creativity and teamwork. Linguistic proficiency in German and English is also required.
