Passagen

The exhibition Passagen was dedicated to transitions as constant companions of people. It took place from September 10 to October 2, 2021 in the church St. Jakob in Zurich. The exhibition focused on the question of how transitions can be coped, working with photography, storytelling and arrangements of personal things. The sacral building functioned as an exhibition and reflection space, as a sound body and as a place of critical questioning. The basis for Passagen was formed by several meetings of the eight protagonists Beat Schwab, Chaowei Arakawa, Emanuel Hohl, Edwin Arsenio Ramirez Garcia, Heidi Stamm, Maria Hardt, Noah Di Bettschen and Yeter Tayet, as well as individual sound recordings, which came together in an expansive audio installation. The idea and concept were developed by Marcel Hörler and Sabina Bösch, following an invitation from About Us! and the Reformed Church of Zurich. In addition, the following people were involved in the project: Julian Zehnder (audio), Maria Muster (textile), Maria Peskina (graphic design), neo seefried (text), Gilles Smrkovsky (editing). Part of the program was also an audience discussion, a sound performance between Kay Zhang, Nuriia Khasenova, Léo Collin (KIT) and Sacha Rüegg and a performance by Elischa Heller.
