The room at the Bickelmuseum was constructed with 9 square rooms in which each selections of works. The works couldn’t be seen outside the boxes. The exhibition was a beautiful surprise. Outside the boxes there were some selections of Hans-Ruedi’s famous shields. Also a reading table with quite unique books from the world of artistamps.
