New Zurich North is published on the occasion of the eponymous international festival held in Zurich, Switzerland in summer 2018 (curated by Christoph Doswald).
Inviting more than 40 international artists to present existing works and new commissions in the public sphere, the manifestation takes the urban transformation of the north area of Zurich as a point of departure and a challenging theme.
This book explores the condition of 21st-century cities, and the way contemporary art could ‘inhabit’ them through the New Zurich North experience and an analysis of past art interventions and discussions in the public realm.
Presenting contributions by artists such as Jean-Marie Appriou, Isabelle Cornaro, Olafur Eliasson, Fischli/Weiss, Raphael Hefti, Irene & Christine Hohenbüchler, Alfredo Jaar, Yves Netzhammer, Veronika Spierenburg, and Lawrence Weiner.
It also includes portfolios by Ruth Erdt and Jules Spinatsch, as well as contributions by Nikolaus Wyss, Rein Wolfs, Juri Steiner, and many more.
Published with Public Art Zurich (KiöR).
