The City of Zurich as a creative contributor?

For our Funeral March we have to build up the tail fin on a car. Therefor we need space and asked the City of Zurich for permission to do it in the casern of Zurich. As a matter of fact, we got it!

The city council of zurich created a piece of art by entitelling this permission: "Bewilligung für das Montieren einer Jumboheckflosse auf ein Rossgespann zu Ausstellungszwecken" (engl: permission to assemble of a Jumbos' tail fin on a harnessed team for exhibition purpose).

***TERMINATED*** message salon, Zurich - Let's Bury the Jumbo Boeing 747!

message salon downtown is the gallery of Esther Eppstein and is placed at Langstrasse, Zurich. Our idea is to place our tail fin (seen at Marks Blond, Bern) on the terrace of this gallery. To make you familiar with Esther and the idea, we made a short video.

The costs for transportation, rebuilding and placing of the tail fin: approximately $1'000. (actually on our bank account: $550)
