Kunstraum Walcheturm is centrally located near the main railway station in the Zeughaus area. It is the main stage for all live coding and young talents in digital art in Switzerland. Kunstraum Walcheturm sees itself as a place where contemporary art is presented, mediated and put up for discussion. With its programme that encompasses contemporary art, new media, video and film, new music, experimental electronic music, performance and sound art, the Walcheturm stands between art halls, galleries and offspaces. It offers national and international artists and a differentiated audience a challenging field of experimentation. Walcheturm is a unique setting in the Zurich area. Here, larger new media projects become possible that would hardly be possible in any other space. It is one of the city of Zurich's most important live platforms and a venue for performance festivals lasting several days.

In the nightlife hotspot Kreis 5 or called Zurich West, on Geroldstrasse, you will find SUPERMARKET, the main stage for the DJing/VJing for the party events of the DA Z. The legendary club has a brand new 360° video mapping installation, unique in Switzerland, and perhaps the best sound system in the country. Despite the immense importance of the supermarket (which used to be a car garage) for Swiss nightlife, it has remained "the old one": Brick walls and a concrete floor that has long since become a cult, which is as much a part of the location as the supermarket itself is of the Zurich clubbing firmament. SUPERMARKET Geroldstr. 17 / 8005 Zürich phone: +41 (0)44 440 20 05 / mail: contact (at) supermarket.li www.supermarket.li

The Wasserkirche is located in the tourist centre of the old town, near the Opera, the Kunsthaus and the Zurich Lake. It is spatially connected to the Helmhaus, the municipal gallery in contemporary art, ainly shown by Swiss artists or artists living in Switzerland. In the vicinity, especially on Rämistrasse, there are top-class galleries for contemporary art.

In the evening, the DA Z mapping concerts take place in the Wasserkirche. During the day, installations and actions will be shown.

"Originally, the church stood on a small island in the Limmat, from which the name comes. Today, the church is only limited by the Limmat on one side, as the island was destroyed when the Limmatquai was filled in. Before the Reformation, the Wasserkirche played an important role in the veneration of Zurich's city saints Felix and Regula, as it was the place of their execution." (Wikipedia)
