After years of efforts went into this year a long-cherished desire of the Zurich artist and Street Art pioneer, Harald Naegeli : The 78-Year-old may spray for a few weeks in the towers of Zurich's grossmünster skeletons on the walls – and with official blessing.

However, the Canton set up as a property owner, clear rules of the game for the dance of death-project of the artist: Naegeli can only spray at certain, agreed in advance. And After four years, the plant must be removed completely, and therefore under the Naegeli-figures, a graffiti protection was applied.

But the artist has now exceeded apparently allocated to him, spray the area. This is clear from the Mails, the existence of the TA. "As expected, triggered the Transgression of the intended spray area on the part of the Canton of Trouble," said the Church care grossmünster Naegeli last Friday. Director of construction, Markus Kägi (SVP) needs by violating his personal trust and wishes to have a debate on Monday.

But Naegeli declined the appointment. "Yesterday I traveled back to Düsseldorf. Unfortunately, I can't take the strenuous trip to Zurich on Sunday, Monday 12 noon in front of the great Cathedral the planned date for the exercise," said the spray paint artists Kägi, the Church, care and friends.

but He that councillor Kägi is also without his personal intercession "from the great concept, as it is already," and his consent for the continuation of the dance of death give will be convinced. He was proud of this modern dance of death, writes the artist. "But we need your solidarity and sovereignty, which is more than the carping and resentment subalterner official, my, report a claim, where none is."

Kägis trust

"We are upset and disappointed," confirms Markus Pfanner, spokesman Markus Kägis building Department. Artist Naegeli have sprayed in places in the great Cathedral tower, where he may do so according to a clear agreement would not have – for example, on the floor. He needs the confidence to miss. "There is a clear agreement. The spray perimeter was defined jointly. It is also important to protect the historic fabric of the building," says Pfanner.

But one had to reckon with such action, of the art rebels Nägeli, in the provocation, and crossing the border to the concept? Pfanner: "With regard to the "rebels" does not excuse everything. There was a clear bargain."

According to Pfanner, the Director of public works Naegeli wants to meet as soon as possible a debate and make it clear that he must keep to the agreements. What happens with the Sprayereien will be decided after the interview. The artist defended on the request of his actions. It was just very minor Exceedances of the perimeter: "There's no harm done, only the rule has been violated." the art was not there "to be accountable to deliver in front of officials," says Naegeli.

Michael Eidenbenz, President of the Church, care of the Grossmünster, in turn, did not want to comment on the case: "This is a matter between the artist and the Canton, we try to mediate and organize a Meeting."
