** Project was also presented within the Playground Program, with one happening in Josephwiese, Zürich.
Why stopping decadence if preserving also causes satisfaction? How does a world in constant search for progress and change, affects positively and negatively our present? Decadence in a cultural sense understood as the inability or impossibility of promoting changes is the starting point for the establishment of the series of community interactions and the production of knowledge and representations. Through conversations and active participation of a community in a workshop, «Stop Decadence!» incorporates opinions about visions of the future for modern human settlements into an artistic research process.
The last event for «Stop Decadence!» was focused on the bringing of ideas to Toni-Areal, to the art producers and back to the neighborhood through drawings. On April 14 the leading question was: How does the new Toni-Areal impact the city of Zurich?
