The NO SHOW MUSEUM is the world‘s first museum of nothing. It presents a wealth of works that “cannot be seen or touched and, for that very reason, sends our imagination on a breath-taking journey to the most remote regions of thinking „(Annabelle no. 06/15).
The museum‘s collection includes around 400 works and documents from over 120 renowned international artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, among them, Marina Abramovic, Joseph Beuys, Daniel Buren, Maurizio Cattelan, Marcel Duchamp, Ceal Floyer, Hans Haacke, Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Gianni Motti, Robert Rauschenberg, Man Ray, Robert Ryman, Richard Serra, Santiago Sierra, Andy Warhol and Rémy Zaugg.
The museum has committed itself to the mission to spread nothing all over the globe. For this reason, it has been traveling from continent to continent since 2015:
I: CENTRAL and NORTHERN EUROPE with 30 Exhibitions in more than 20 countries. From July to October 2015.
II: NORTH AMERICA. From August to October 2016.
III: CENTRAL AMERICA. From November 2017 to January 2018.
IV: WESTERN EUROPE. From October 2018 to November 2018.
This unique international festival is situated in one of the most beautiful parks of Zurich. It is jointly presented by Kaufleuten and Literaturhaus Zurich, the two major venues
for literary events in Zurich. The evening program consists of premieres, performances and readings by acclaimed writers and exciting newcomers. In addition, there are numerous
artistic projects exploring alternative literary expressions and presentation forms: eg, poetic installations, performances, interactive guided tours, radio plays and interdisciplinary
projects between text, dance and theater.
Next Festival: 2 -8 July 2018
Project Space for performative and transdisciplinary arts in Zurich. Various artists collectives contribute with weekly events and performances to its public program which also includes transdisciplinary research and workshops. Founded and run since 2013 by Pablo Assandri and Andreas Heusser.
Rose Lukhele (born 1993 in Daveyton, SA), known by her stage name JOZIA, is a multitalented Singer/Songwriter and Indie Artist from Johannesburg.
Jozia is a consummate musical chameleon with an adventurous spirit and a distinctive artistic vision. She loves to experiment with styles, sounds and words, blending genres like acoustic folk, soul, pop and indie rock. And yet her output is so distinctly her own; perhaps it's her emotive and multifaceted vocals or the courage of her unconventional songwriting.
Spiced up with wordplays, poetic ambiguity and a subtle humour, she explores the big themes in life that really matter: Love and loss, mariages and cows, otherness and alienation, puberty and identity, marihuana and democracy, and, of course, the unsolved mistery of mother-daughter relationships. Even if we don‘t understand the words – Jozia sings in Sepedi, Zulu, Xhsosa, Xevenda and English - the pure intensity and emotionality of her songs unfold a magic that we cannot escape.
Jozia is managed by Society of Arts / Andreas Heusser.
