"Let's Save The Whales International"

June 23 - September 5

Veli & Amos (ZHdK MFA) were invited to do a new Billboard for Gasträume 16 (Manifesta 11) in Zurich and would like to invite you to take part. They are collecting money for their next film 'Lets Save The Whales International'. Whales are huge and they are only two. They can’t save them alone and need your support.

You have a unique chance to 'add something' by renting a space on their sculpture. Feel free to choose whatever is in your heart or on your mind. (logo, drawing, picture, words, love letter, etc.)

It will then be printed or handpainted by Veli & Amos and exhibited from now until the 5th of September 2016 on a very prominent spot in Zurich and will provide a great opportunity to get your ideas out there.

Just send us your image as soon as possible in high resolution, the size you want and your invoice address to: veliandamos(at)gmail.com

MFA Social Space Cart

Due to the lack of an exclusive social space within the Master of Fine Arts, the students of the FS16 “Collaboration & Collectivity” MFA POOL-Seminar came up with a solution.

Inspired by the seminar readings, discussions and this pressing concern, “SKOOLER” was created. It’s a mobile, all-in-one cart filled with the necessary materials for spontaneous, MFA gatherings. It's ready to roll when you are!
