Art Altstetten Albisrieden: A Public Art Project
Edited by Christoph Doswald. Text by Nico Anklam, Konrad Bitterli, et al.
Art Altstetten Albisrieden is published on the occasion of an exhibition project of the same name held in Zurich in summer 2015. Inviting more than 30 artists to present works in the public space, the manifestation takes as a point of departure the urban transformation of two traditional Zurich neighborhoods. Altstetten and Albisrieden were small villages at the beginning of the 20th century and developed popular cooperative housing. Now these villages are undergoing rapid transformation as the city of Zurich is growing fast. Altstetten and Albisrieden have long been very popular as studio addresses for artists such as Fischli/Weiss, Carl Bucher and Pipilotti Rist, but they are gradually losing their original charm.
