This issue seeks to bring to the forefront the various positions and strategies of the most diverse art initiatives, from project and off-spaces to personalities within the art field, as well as those of established galleries and institutions and city officials based in Zurich in 2020. Originally, this issue was intended to draw a picture of the Zurich art scene and was meant to be published parallel to Art Basel 2020. Though with the current pandemic’s additional layering, the main focus of the precariousness of the independent art scene in Zurich has increased dramatically. In this respect, we would like you to read the conducted interviews and the contributions not only as a lively, diverse, surprising, dazzling scene, but also as an ensemble of shared demands towards cultural policies.
