Badi Enge, ETH, and MANIFESTA 11: Hedwig Fijen’s Zurich

By Whitewaller

June 10, 2016

This weekend, just before Art Basel opens next week, Zurich will hold its annual Gallery Weekend. Whitewaller caught up with the founding director of MANIFESTA, Hedwig Fijen, to get her take on the city.

“Badi Enge, Zurich (Seebad Enge) is one of the best spots to swim, eat, drink, and enjoy the cosmopolitan city life of Zurich in a wonderful, relaxing spirit.”

“I usually visit some galleries and some museums, and walk along the Zurich See (Lake Zurich) to get some fresh air. Last year, I tried to walk each Sunday in the Wanderkarte of the DADA historical venues to see where they lived, worked, and published.”

“Try to book your hotel ahead of time. Take some very good sneakers since you are walking miles and miles due to the huge amounts of venues.”

“Being at the ETH, the famous architectural school, and feeling the huge legacy of founder Semper, since my major was Architecture.”
