Many people have died on Lake Geneva.

Don't be fooled by its appearance, the lake can be unpredictable. A dozen or so main winds blow across it, making it look like a small inland sea: Bise, bise noire, Vent, Joran, Vaudaire, Maurabia, Bornan, Môlan... They sometimes drag the waters of the lake into an impetuous whirlpool whose fury causes boats to capsize. On stormy days, certain waves can create oceanic rollers up to 6 metres high. In foggy weather, sailors report seeing the fading silhouette of a phantom steamer disappear into the mist. But it is not only the weather that is responsible. The misguidedness of men is the cause of many tragedies.

In collaboration with the Musée du Léman, this exhibition presents some of the most tragic and improbable disasters in the history of the lake. Boats, trains, hot-air balloons, planes and sunken shipwrecked people: the ghosts of Lake Geneva are part of the fateful mystery of the deep.
