Urban Signs Photo Trip goes Photo10

I love the various urban signs that you upload each week. Cheers! You can also upload photos of Zurich which will then appear in one of the newsletters. Lately there weren’t any. So if i get a wish for the Christmas, then it’s your images of Zurich, uploaded on the website. Cheers again!  But let’s go back to the urban signs photos for now.  Photo10 is one of the most important work exhibitions of Switzerland’s photography. About 120 photographers display their pictures there. Ron as well! I’m allowed to fill two walls, which i pass on to you. Each photo of the topic urban signs, which is uploaded to the forum and of which a print out (max A3) is sent to Blofeld will find a space at Photo 10. The best image will be awarded with a Nikon COOLPIX P7000 with wide angle converter. Upload & send photo to: Blofeld Entertainment GmbH, Re: Ron Orp, Langstrasse 94, 8004 Zürich

Good. No, bad

Argument about art is as common as agreement, which is partly what makes it art I suppose. At Art + Argument, as you might expect, two expert teams are asked to oppose or defend an idea about art and painting for five minutes, followed by challenges from the other team and then audience members. I like the idea that team members don’t have to agree with the position they are arguing which should add an element of irreverence to the whole affair.
Thursday 7:30 pm, Claudia Groeflin Gallery, Dienerstrasse 12

Child prodigy

Baby Genius may come from Luzern but Britpop was where this boy learnt to rock n’ roll. The English exports of attitude and improvisation seem to have found a happy home here. Baby Genius is touring his new album and will be at a favourite of mine, Long Street Bar, this week.
Thursday 8 pm, Long Street Bar

Pinball wizard

‘Ever since I was a young boy/I've played the silver ball/From Soho down to Brighton/I must have played them all’ - if you’ve always wanted to be cool like Tommy (but without the physical hindrances) then you now have your chance to shine. Le Calvados have organised a pinball competition and for the 5 franc entrance fee you get your beer included as well as a chance to win, among other things, a season ticket to Letzigrund. Of course all this pales into insignificance compared to being crowned Pinball Wizard of Zurich.
Friday 6 pm, Calvados, Idaplatz

Party people

Elektrostubete is the party label from Bern and on Friday they bring the party to Rote Fabrik. ‘Stubete’ is a traditional Bernese word for a small celebration with folk music and dance, however this is like comparing candles with neon. A live show by Polder from Amsterdam will be followed up by some of the best djs from the two Cantons including Dejan, Lukas Kleesattel, Dave Canina and Jon Donson.  Traditional it ain’t.
Friday 11 pm, Rote Fabrik

Rambling rose

Jesse Rose is a London house dj, based out of Berlin. As a producer, remixer and label owner he has been involved with some great names (Hot Chip, Radio Slave), and as a dj plays across Europe as well as residencies at Kiss FM and Back to Yours in London. This Saturday he’ll be headlining at Hive along with P Toile.
Saturday 11 pm, Hive Club

Shake a leg

I usually associate Stratford-Upon-Avon with Shakespeare, the picturesque home town of the famous writer, with ancient theatres that still stage his plays. I’m not intending to convince you to visit the town and see play there by the Shakespeare Company (though it’s definitely worth a trip). But Stratford-Upon-Avon rocks. Indie rock by Eight Legs. This Tuesday at Hafenkneipe.
Tuesday 8.30 pm, Hafenkneipe

Eating: Kantine Hermetschloo

Most meals that I don’t eat at home are actually over lunchtime. So I thought I’d recommend a nice, public canteen for a change: Kantine Hermetschloo. Being located at Zurich Altstetten, it’s not very central, but many of us don’t work in the inner city. From the venue on the sixth floor you get a fantastic, urban view over the city, just above the rail tracks. The friendly team cooks fresh, seasonal, international meals daily. If you know of other public canteens that are worth a try, let me know!
Kantine Hermetschloo, Hermetschloostrasse 70

Good to Know

It’s cold outside – time to take a bath. Nothing warms cold bones as good as a hot bath or a visit to the sauna or a spa. Saunas you find all around town, at your local fitness centre, at the lake, at Helvetiaplatz (Stauffacherstrasse 60) or the Turkish version Hamam in the Niederdorf (where you can also book online now). This week, there is also the opening of the first thermal spa in Zurich. Hooray! Zurich always had hot springs, but Zwinglian Zurich was against thermal spas. Until now. This Saturday the first ever will opens its doors, in an old brewery house. I like the idea! It opens this Saturday and offers 2 for 1 entries until 17 December.

The international language of rhythm

Recently I went clubbing in Tokyo with Mr Samurai.fm until the early mornings. His platform samurai.fm is like a treasure chest, filled with dj-mixes of music across all countries and genres. For your personal treasure hunt, you fill in genre and style and then: float. You’ll find new tunes but also timeless classics. Wonderfully international and eclectic. That’s what I’m listening to this morning.

Ron’s Interview

Redley grew up in New York and also studies fashion design there. Afterwards she chose Switzerland, well Geneva, as her home. After more studying, the innovative designer started her own fashion label: Redley Exantus. To cut a long story short – check out my interview with her here.

Add to favourit  Festival: In the old town
 

The legendary «Dörflifest» takes place one more time this weekend at Niederdorf. The cobbled streets will be filled not just with hen and stag nights as well as young party goers (the usual crowd) but also a large quantity of locals. So expect a busy place where you find everything your night-owl heart desires from food and drinks, to stalls and live music at Hirschenplatz.
Friday from 6 pm, Saturday from 3 pm, Sunday from 10 am, Niederdorf

 
Add to favourit  Festival: On the go
 

Whenever I return from Asia, I miss the wonderful street food that’s on offer there. Seems like someone heard me. The first Street Food Festival takes place this weekend with delicacies from the world over, everything to go. Friday starts with a musical introduction and a dinner set-up, Saturday you can eat your way around the globe all day and night and on Sunday the Food Market offers an alternative to the classic brunch. If your mouth is already watering – hang in there, it starts tomorrow.
Friday from 5 pm, Saturday & Sunday from 12 pm, Allmendstrasse 92, 8041

Add to favourit  Party: A long night at the museum
 

A long night awaits you at Photobastei (to be honest, I never realized there is another kind of night there) with concerts, performances and  open house within the museum. After its few months of existence this is Photobastei's last weekend, and this its final event - it's now or never time.
Saturday 8 pm, Photobastei

 
Add to favourit  Festival: International affair
 

Next to the «Dörflifest» and the «Street Food festival» there is also a festival at Zeughaushof. It’s a first and the program offers everything from games for kids and families to food stalls, exhibitions as well as live music. You get the best songs of rock history with Family Affair, followed by the powerful voice of Janis is Alive. Prior to the band, lecturers and students of the Voice+Music Academy will prove their talent. An international affair that takes place on Saturday. Entry is for free
Saturday from 2 pm, Zeughaushof

 
Add to favourit  Festival: Short is sometimes better
 

It's been twelve years since Fantoche, the international festival for animations, had its launch in Baden. I've visited the festival several times over the last years and can recommend this trip out of town to all of you. Next to animation shorts you’ll also find cut scenes from video games for national and international designers. This year’s guest is Japan so I’m sure you’re in for some innovative treats and with more than 1000 shorts to choose from, there is something for every taste.
2. to 7. September, Fantoche, Baden

The 25 hours Hotel will turn into a fashion house for a weekend with pop-up-stores, bars, fashion shows and djs from 10.-12. October. If you’re a fashion designer, get in touch, there are still some rooms to be taken over by young talents. And if shopping, beauty, fashion and parties all in one sounds like heaven to you: I have 5x2 tickets to give away. Just send me an email and let me know why you have to be there and they could be yours.
10.-12. October, 25 hours hotel

 
Add to favourit   Eating: A taste of sunshine
 

Dinghy is a lovely little bar with a colourfully decorated forecourt right at Schanzengraben. Next to good coffees and a varied menu with a few selected dishes each day, they also offer a classic «Italian Aperitivo» from Wednesday to Friday. It’s probably one of the few places where you can find some Mediterranean flair this rainy summer.
Dinghy, Brandschenkenstrasse 5, 8001. Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Blossoming gifts
 

My latest recycling discovery is the wrapping paper by Eden’s paper. After the gift is given and unwrapped, you can bury the paper in the earth. With a bit of luck and dedication the inserted seeds will grow into something edible. Three different kinds of papers are available: «Super Food», «Summer Salad» or «Flower Power» - made only from natural colours of course.

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: New in town
 

Although I believe that you receive all essential information from me that you need to assimilate in Zurich, I’m aware that there are some of you, who’d like to know even more about Zurich, the system and its bureaucracy. «Neu in Zürich» is a service by the cantonal council and what it lacks in style it makes up with information. Here you can find everything you'll ever needed to know about health, education, social security, police and customs.
