Neuer Norden Zürich, Public Art Project

Neuer Norden Zürich (New North Zurich) is a temporary project in the public areas of Zurich North. Organized by the city’s public art program and curated by Christoph Doswald the exhibition includes around 40 works by artists from all over the world that are installed at various locations in the districts Schwamendingen, Oerlikon and Seebach. Sculptures, installations, performances, posters and interventions, some in unconventional sites, allow surprising encounters with art and impressive urbanistic situations, facilitating a new way of experiencing Zurich North beyond green areas, the freeway and construction sites.

The artworks address transformation and development of the urban living environment. Alongside specific aspects of local history, the central theme of the exhibition is the Schwamendingen „Einhausung“ and how it affects neighbourhoods.

Participating artists are Jean-Marie Appriou, Frank and Patrik Riklin (Atelier für Sonderaufgaben), Baltensperger+Siepert, Miquel Barceló, Benedikte Bjerre, Katinka Bock, Tina Braegger, Stefan Burger, Los Carpinteros, Isabelle Cornaro, Paul Czerlitzki, Olafur Eliasson, Ruth Erdt, Fischli/Weiss, Annemie Fontana, HR Giger, John Giorno, Manaf Halbouni, Stella Hamberg, Raphael Hefti, Nic Hess, Gregor Hildebrandt, Irene & Christine Hohenbüchler, Alfredo Jaar, Daniel Knorr, Peter Kogler, Renée Levi, Rémy Markowitsch, Achim Mohné, Olivier Mosset, Matt Mullican,Yves Netzhammer, Peles Empire, Annaïk Lou Pitteloud, Alex Sadkowsky, Lin May Saeed, Veronika Spierenburg, Jules Spinatsch, Bernhard Vogelsanger, and Lawrence Weiner.
