Message Salon is a legendary project run by artist Esther Eppstein since 1996. It started at Perla-Mode on Langstrasse in Zürich, where Epstein organized and staged exhibitions, performances, talks, all sorts of projects, discussions, and outspoken opinions.
Around 2015, message salon turned into a nomadic artist-run artist residence project called „message salon embassy“. message salon embassy invites international artists to Zürich. Once in town, Madame l’Ambassadeur Esther Eppstein takes her guests to explore the local art scene, to meet people, personalities, friends and art. They visit galleries, museums, festivals, and occasionally cook together. Each residence ends with the publication of a zine, launched during a public event.
This one was at Strauhof and organized in collaboration with Ivona Brdjanovic.
