Deutsche Bank Switzerland starts up an art project in public space

"A nice message against consumerist terror and burnout" is how curator Christoph Doswald describes the first work completed for the 17ZWEI art project located beneath the Hardbrücke in Zurich. The elevated train station of the same name is one of Switzerland's most heavily trafficked stations, connecting large parts of "Züri West," where Deutsche Bank is located in the Prime Tower. Instead of ads, works by students of Zurich's Hochschule der Künste ZHdK can be seen in the underpass throughout the year. The project is a joint effort between Deutsche Bank Switzerland and the art academy. Works of art by MFA students alternate every six weeks in a 56-foot-long space rented by the bank that measures a mere six and a half feet high, hence the name 17ZWEI. Sweet Sunday, you remind me of Monday is the title of Francisca Silva's work. The handwritten word "Sonntag" is repeated across the large poster wall like a mantra.

"In a space where commuters normally rush to work, Francisca Silva evokes the very opposite. She reminds passersby of the day reserved for peace and spiritual renewal: Sunday," explains Christoph Doswald. The independent jury responsible for selecting the participants in 17ZWEI consists of the director of the working group Art in Public Space in the City of Zurich together with gallery dealer Peter Kilchmann and artist Shirana Shabazi. Marco Bizzozero, CEO of Deutsche Bank (Switzerland) AG explains: "Supporting young artists has been Deutsche Bank's aim for over 30 years. At the same time, with 17ZWEI we are helping to change the area around the new Prime Tower. We feel particularly obligated to our new neighborhood and have set out to express this clearly with 17ZWEI. The variety in approach the students will take in working with this public space can be seen in the months to come.
