Companies meet Young Professionals
Swiss companies present in China and Chinese companies present in Switzerland use the Swiss-Chinese Career Symposium to recruit students, graduates and young professionals for a career in China – respectively in Switzerland. The companies offer a diverse range of positions that are targeted at Chinese talents who were educated in Switzerland and hence have been exposed to both cultures and Swiss talents with an interest for a professional career in China. Seize this opportunity to introduce yourself to the companies, build personal contacts, and learn more about your possible career paths in both cultures.

With this project, Nicolas Büchi will curate the work of the Hong Kong based artist group TRILATERAL LAB for the first time in Europe. It will result in an space-filling installation in Zurich. Within this installation, Berlin-based artist Sergej Vutuc will pickup the composition, rework, remix and reunderstand the original artwork.
The goal is, to find a new and widely interesting way to curate audial composition, visual choreography and give performance artists unusal source material to work on. Through this collaboration, between the original artwork by the Hong Kong based artists and the reperfor- mancing of european based artists, the concept of sheer geographical distance, which results in cultural and sometimes artistic difference, will be rethinked and restructured.
