students and China While in Hong Kong, friendly forces, bloody battles, make use of supporters of the protest movement in Zürich walls for aggressive Sprayereien. This is, at least from a Mail sent by Thomas D. Meier, rector, Zurich University of the arts, to the "members of the ZHDK".
Meier writes in it, in the Toni-Areal had been attached to the last Wednesday "in connection with the unrest in Hong Kong" Sprayereien with explicitly political content, which would, in turn, led to counter-reactions. Both sides had partially incited violence.
Sprayereien with aggressive rhetoric
The rector stressed in his Letter that the ZHDK tolerate as a cantonal Institution, no problematic political Statements and the Sprayereien therefore removed immediately got. Basically, the students are asked to design the walls in the corridors of the building on the Toni-Areal in Zurich-West itself, but you attach great importance to the fact that all students would be met with appreciation and respect.
As Meier, on request, have to communicate well internally, what is allowed and what is not. It had been at the Sprayereien aggressive rhetoric, what could not accept. At the ZHDK, three or four persons study from Hong Kong, and around a dozen from China.
Close relationship with the Hong Kong
The ZHDK has a close relationship to universities in Hong Kong. So students from Zurich, in the framework of the term programme "Transcultural Collaboration" in Hong Kong. A part of the installations and Performances of the mentioned semester programme would also focus on the protests in Hong Kong. The now distant Sprayereien to be appropriate "outlier," says Meier.
The rector emphasized that the freedom of art is protected by the Federal Constitution. The students are allowed to Express themselves with the means of art, of course, related to political issues.
