Methods & Practices



A first research initiative DACARDoing Arth-Goldau–Como as artistic research serves as an agent and means to explore various ways “to do methods". It is dedicated to north-south/south-north mobility between the metropolitan regions of Zürich and Como/Milan. The focus lies on movements of people, material and immaterial goods. In its frame, explorative approaches and formats are tested.

To approach the topic two workshops were conducted in 2019, including the Workshop Zug-Weggis-Bürgenstock. The workshop had a special focus on commodity trade, cash flow and tourism.

* Visiting the city of Zug, Bahnhofstrasse

* Visit at Kolmar Mining Company, KSL AG

* Visit at Afrika Museum of the St. Petrus-Claver-Sodalität in Zug

* Visit at Tourism Destination Weggis

* Visit at Bürgenstock Resort

At both workshops, field work was carried out as observation; intense exchange amongst the participants of the workshop; meetings with key actors in the field; talking to residents of and people working in the area; observing local businesses; walking as a method of perception; writing field notes; taking pictures, recording audio & video material; and an essayistic field report in the aftermath of the workshop.
