A Köbi-would the monument be good for Zurich

Köbi Kuhn deserves a monument – he was already in his own lifetime a bit of. He reminded us, not least, a Zurich, which is so different from the Zürich of today. One of the many classics possibly still from the film, such as Polizischt Wäckerli or Bäckerei Zürrer know. Something rural, something respectable, and in the Innermost convinced that their Size is something very, very Relative.

that is Why Kuhn would probably be quite satisfied, it should be one day dedicated to the somewhat unsightly spot near his longtime home behind the Triemli-Spital, that is already named unofficially after him. The former Journalist Benjamin Styger, wants to move the city to make this assessment officially. A nice thought, and Kuhn, that would be sufficient, but he was sometimes too modest. He deserves better – if already, because already.

Why not a classic monument to the fritschi Wiese in his quarters? There, where he tschuttete as a Boy himself? Where on the weekends the Fans of his club gather, the FC Zürich? And where, on Sunny days, parents with their children in the Grass and then tell can lie, who was this older gentleman and why he once nearly the whole of the country into the heart closed?

Not anymore

It is foreseeable that such an idea would trigger resistance, not least in the city. As the working group of art was asked in the public space almost ten years ago, if you could put Hans Künzi, the father of the Zurich S-Bahn, a monument, did you a hard time. Classic people images were not in accordance with more time, it was called. The majority of today in the city, would be from the late 19th century. Century.

Therefore, the experts of the city, hired a concept artist in order to pay tribute to Hans Künzi in a way that corresponds to a "contemporary understanding of the monument". The result are those glowing neon rings, which move at the main station at the exit Europa-Allee on the ceiling. Neon in honor, but would certainly be a bit too abstract for uncomplicated, Köbi Kuhn, and most of the people, who believed to recognize in him.

to make matters worse, Zurich recognises all kinds of personalities, which is hardly more one knows, but striking back heroes from the world of sport holds for people. Although there is a Hugo Koblet-named after the revered Tour de France-winner, but the only athletes monument of the city's many art experts of a to The figure in front of the indoor stadium for the young of heart failure, a dead hockey player Chad Silver had been placed by the patrons Association of the ZSC's own powerful there. To the Annoyance of the art Commission, you can remove and through an artistic project of high quality to replace wanted.

Perhaps a good Moment to be a little more relaxed and to renew the Zurich figure, Park of classic images selectively would be now. Then you could put up in the centre of that monument, the women want just as a counterweight to guys like Hans Waldmann: one for Catherine of rooms, the last Zurich's Abbess, the unsung heroine of the "Zwingli"-movie back to consciousness. (The city Council rejects such a monument, him of the to their honor, and established abstract Cubes from 37 copper is sufficient, apparently, blocks.)

And you could put on the fritschi Wiese a, Köbi Kuhn, the coach benches, from where he is watching with his strange, somewhat melancholy Smile the Bustle of the people.
