Eurokot, 1. Symposium für interaktives Recycling, 1995

Partnered with Mark Divo, Maja helped lead the conception, organisation and coordination
of this multimedia event.
Taking place in the vacant pedestrian underpass Escher-Wyss evolves an overall artwork
from large-scale paintings, sculptural objects, sound installations. Most notably, the show
was made entirely with recycled material.
The project is supported by the government of the city of Zurich, the city waste company
and pro Helvetia. (Präsidialabteilung der Stadt Zürich, Abfuhrwesen der Stadt Zürich,
pro Helvetia, Kulturaustausch Ost/West)
Thirty international artists were invited to manipulate during the three-week build up phase
over twenty tons of waist material.

The three week opening which followed saw many performances, including:
Teatr Novogo Fronta /RU, Kule Geckos /D, Destroy after use /NL, Scum of Toytown /GB,
Dottir /DK, the Molecules /USA, Piombo a Tempo /I, Boni and Bubi /CH, Vendetta /CH,
We Mean /CH, Luke Slater /GB, Styro /CH and many more.
For this rich cultural program of fine arts, theatre, lectures, performances and music
events from techno to punk to rap we received the Swiss music prize of the year for 1995.
(Schweizer Rockpreis 1995).
