Langstrasse bizarre

Langstrasse is the queer side of Zurich, with street prostitution, drug dealers and bizarre shops. Here are the bizarre shops.

A night club, maybe?

The board says “means of transportation” … ???

Lovely shop window for a silver worker

Italian pizzeria, of course.

Too small to fit..

ZÜRCHER/IN: of Gods and humans

Did you miss ZÜRCHER/IN the exhibition? ZÜRCHER/IN is a photography project created by ARTBorghi (Lorenzo Borghi and Maria Francesca) on the common people highly over-represented as bronze and granite statues in the city of Zürich, Switzerland. Just a few statues of prominents adorn this Swiss city, which is flooded by commoners mostly relaxing in their free time. Not all statues represent common people: gods decorate the streets of Zürich too.

In the book, available online, coordinates and maps will additionally help you in this art-quest.

ZÜRCHER/IN: between work and free time

Thanks to all the visitors for the highly positive feedback and support ZÜRCHER/IN got in the last two weeks, from the vernissage to the last day at Photobastei 2.0.

Did you miss ZÜRCHER/IN the exhibition?

Find what was all about in the next three blog posts. ZÜRCHER/IN is a photography project created by ARTBorghi (Lorenzo Borghi and Maria Francesca) on the common people highly over-represented as bronze and granite statues in the city of Zürich, Switzerland. Just a few statues of prominents adorn this Swiss city, which is flooded by commoners mostly relaxing in their free time. A Swiss hymn to power to the people? A wise suggestion to take it easy? A neo-classic time-machine?

ZÜRCHER/IN, the new ARTBorghi photo exhibition opens July 5.

ZÜRCHER/IN of lorenzo borghi – Photobastei 2.0, Zurich, Switzerland

An elusive presence. Many of the bronze and granite statues in the streets and parks of Zurich have populated the city for almost a century. The artworks of local and foreign artists rightfully acquired the honorary citizenship. Whether women in skimpy clothes or young nude boys, everyday human being is elevated to symbolic heights.  A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.

Find more at the official Photobastei website (auf Deutsch), on the website of Centro Italiano di Cultura in Zurigo (in italiano) or download the flyer in English.

Contact me through artborghi@gmail.com for more information or for setting up a guided visit to the exhibition. Pass by and discover an elusive side of Zürich you might have missed!
