Anonymer User Beitrag: “Eine Landschaft entsteht, einzig durch die Verwendung von Graphitstiften verschiedener Härten und dem natürlichen Muster des schweren Papiers. ‘Koh-I-Moor’ steht unten auf der Karte, die Herkunft des Werkzeugs. Auch der grosse Diamant der englischen Kronjuwelen. Aus England kommt auch der erste Bleistift; Graphit in handlicher Form.”
Invitation cards by the Zurich project space Corner College.
“Corner College was founded in 2008 at Perla-Mode Zürich. In 2011 the space moved to Kochstrasse and was run by Irene Grillo, Sarah Infanger, Urs Lehni, Jeannette Polin, Philip Matesic und Stefan Wagner until 2014. 2015 marks a new period of activities following Corner College’s legacy as a space for activities between art and quasi-academic educational approaches with an openness for Zurich’s artistic, activist, and intellectual communities.
Until September 2018, Corner College was located in Zurich’s District 4, and since then has functioned as a nomadic space without a location of its own. It is an independent project space for new and experimental formats of exhibition making, with a focus on research and process oriented contemporary art, quasi-academic knowledge production and the nurturing of discursive forms of contemporary art and theory in a dialog with urban processes, society, technologies, research, transdisciplinarity. CC activates a space of micropractices and participation of the public that echo in a network of local and global exchange.” Source

Pictures by Andreas Züst of graffitis by Harald Naegeli, aka Sprayer von Zürich. The show was curated by Mara Züst.
“Andreas Züst (1947–2000) was a photographer, a painter, and an art collector; a social butterfly, a publisher, and a film producer; a bibliophile, a scientist, and a patron of the arts. Beginning in the early 1970s, he documented and photographed Zürich’s art and culture scene, transcending the boundaries between subcultures, high culture, and pop culture. It was with this same broad-minded spirit that he later became a collector and publisher of (art) books.” Source
