Temperatures Look Set to Rise at the Zurich Pride Festival!
On June 10 & 11, the Swiss lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community will once more be flying the flag at the Zurich Pride Festival on the Kasernenareal.

Art Meets Occupation
Manifesta is the only roving biennial of contemporary art. From Rotterdam to Frankfurt to San Sebastian and St. Petersburg – its journey has taken it all over Europe. Between June and September, Manifesta 11 will be guesting in Zurich. Featuring 130 artists, a floating pavilion and 38 parallel events, Manifesta venues and activities are scattered all over the city. Under theme of “What People Do for Money: Some Joint Ventures”, artists from all over the world are getting together with representatives of Zurich-based occupations. Catalan artist Carles Congost, for example, is working with the Zurich Fire Department to produce a film, “Simply the Best”, which addresses the difference between a job as a vocation or simply a means of earning money. Maurizio Cattelan is collaborating with a Paralympic athlete, while Marguerite Humeau has entered into a joint venture with a robotics engineer. Also among the artists participating is French author Michel Houellebecq, who has teamed up with a doctor to present Manifesta visitors with a meticulous evaluation of his health.
