Here&Now: A Birthday Present
unterstrass.edu is a pioneering school in Zurich — and has been for the last 150 years. The institute trains teachers and the high school guides students to their high-school diploma. What makes this place special is its focus on values and a style of teaching that is inclusive and encourages new approaches.
Enough praise. I have been invited to contribute a piece to commemorate the big birthday. With «Here&Now», I am setting a counterpoint to the anniversary celebrations, emphasising that which has been and that which is yet to come. My three portraits of current students ask: what are you taking away from unterstrass.edu here and now?
At the end of May I worked three days on site. The final sculptures will be handed over and inaugurated in September, details will follow: subscribe to my newsletter and invitations.
