The fourth publication in the Vox Populi series, presents a social portrait of Switzerland selected from personal and private family photo albums. Often intimate and individual, these pictures when presented as a collection, reveal shared intimacies and humour, and shared Swiss traditions such as fasnacht and pictures of dining tables laden with food. On one hand these appear culturally specific, but when seen in the context of the whole project, shared and comparable traditions appear to cross borders, nations, and cultures.

Drawing on the documentary tradition, in combination with contemporary concerns of participation and egalitarianism, Vox Populi, Switzerland continues Tan’s ever-expanding mappo mundi.
