Kursk at the Cabaret Voltaire

When Lynn was visiting in February, we wandered through the Niederdorf (my favorite part of town) and I showed her the Cabaret Voltaire – the birthplace of Dada in Zürich. I felt a little disheartened to see that someone had painted some graffiti over the name.

It is still not clear to me exactly what Kursk means, but to the best of my translations, it is a group that is going to perform until next month in the space. They liken themselves to a nuclear submarine and performance art.

At least the front has been restored to its original paint job.
