Baugeschichtliches Archiv der Stadt Zürich 3.September – 6 December 2020 Thursday to Saturday 5 to 9 pm. Sunday noon to 6 pm. Photobastei Curated by Ylva Meyer, Project Manager Architectural History Archive for the City of Zurich. Printed in Piezography pro on Japanese paper, by blackprint. For the second time, the Architectural History Archive is presenting a series of images from the first half of the 20th century in the Photobastei – with the focus on the city as a production site and trading venue. Zurich was not always a service city. But who still knows that factories made cars here, that you could smoke locally produced cigarettes and enjoy a bitter bitters from Altstetten? The exhibition conveys a picture of everyday working life and shows the unexpected, the forgotten and the well-known from Zurich shops, in craft businesses and factories. They all shaped the urban space. On the outskirts of the city as well as on the lake and on the rivers, industrial companies lined up: textile industry, metal industry, brick production on the clayey Uetliberg. Shops and factories lined the streets in the city center and the neighborhoods. other info about blackprint and this exhibition.
