Migros Museum of Contemporary Art (Limmatstr. 270, Zurich)
The reasons for migrating to Switzerland are multiple, some students come for educational reasons, or economic reasons or other people are fleeing their countries destroyed by war, or they are prosecuted. Arriving in Switzerland, an imagined paradise, a bunch of regulations is awaiting the newcomers. How can we react to these regulations as well politically as culturally? Which singular or shared actions are possible? With special inputs by Katharina Morawek, Yvonne Apiyo Brändle-Amolo and Olga Stefan. We will speak about strategies, alliances, and subversive actions.
