stromereien 11 will take place from the 3rd to the 12th of August 2011 and will explore the River Limmat as an artery and a corridor through the city.

The artists can choose their place / space / situation from the areas along the River Limmat or the adjacent districts. The submitted projects should be characterised by an open or restrained passion for exploring the city environment and the river.
