The Working Group on Art in the Public Space of the City of Zurich (KiöR) wants to promote an active approach to works of art in the public space. That is why, from June to September 2017, it provides guest rooms for temporary use with art.

Of “guest rooms”, KiRR promises to enable the direct contact between art and people, because art in the urban space offers an individual and often not everyday opportunity to see the world in which one lives with different eyes.

The KiöR Working Group responds to the need of galleries and museums in the public space and, through the “guest rooms” project, creates opportunities for art in attractive locations according to specific requirements.

“Gasträume” started as a pilot project in the summer of 2010. This year, twelve guest rooms are available for three months each year. The places offer a platform for the temporary establishment of works of art. The squares are located in different districts with high urban dynamics and allow different scenarios in dealing with art in the public space.
