Eurokon, 2. Symposium für interaktives Recycling, 1996

Following the success of Eurokot, a second eight-week forum in Russia is organized with
cooperation by the Museum of Primitive Arts of Ural and Siberia, the association Environment
(state architecture and arts academy of Yekaterinburg), the Siberian Unesco club Krug and
the Swiss foundation pro Helvetia.

This collective of artists, made up of 16 Western European and 10 Russian artists, met in
Yekaterinburg to work in groups with the raw waste material of four different factory areas
on site: one tyre production, a rubber factory, a ceramic foundry and a scrap yard.
Unfortunately, the physical exposition of the project is only documented by a gallery show in
town, as at the time, industrial locations were not accessible to the public.
For their next endeavor the group travels to Novosibirsk where an exposition is created with
on site paintings, objects and sculptures, which was then shown in the national museum of
Siberia.
