At Home in Wollishofen

The project "At Home in Wollishofen" is realized in collaboration with the GZ Wollishofen and with the support from the Rote Fabrik, as part of the series of events celebrating its 30th anniversary. It focuses on the Wollishofen neighborhood of Zurich, and tries, through artistic interventions, to create settings for a “communicative home”. One of the factors that triggered the idea of the project were the public construction works that take place in many areas of Wollishofen, which changed the face of the neighborhood, brought in new inhabitants (the workers), made the streets narrower and interaction more frequent. We can think of the whole project as being under the sign of labor, in process, as a network of relationships and interactions in flux. The goal of the project is to create “spaces of encounter”, where the inhabitants of Wollishofen, the passers by, the artists and the street workers can meet, interact and maybe feel “at home”.
