    “Who is online?” – Discover the shared history of international Geneva | City of Geneva

    Inspired by red phones formerly installed between the United States and the USSR, “Who’s online?” broadcasts a montage of extracts from speeches by personalities given in the 20th century in Geneva.

    The exhibition

    “Who is online?” is based on a simple and original idea: allowing everyone to be online with a great historical figure and to listen to his voice on the telephone. You want to have Winston Churchill, Che Guevara, Gandhi or Eleanor Roosevelt on the line? Nothing could be simpler: pick up!

    By listening in a sort of “intimacy” to these famous voices, visitors discover not only their voice, but also a moment in history and the role played by Geneva. The extracts from the speeches form a compilation of the highlights of international Geneva and confirm that our city is a privileged place for global diplomacy.
