In the former premises of the Cabaret Voltaire in Spiegelgasse 1 in Zurich, where Dadaism was founded in 1916, a dynamic contemporary cultural site was to be created again. The publication addresses the importance of the place, addresses the problem of non-mystifying, contemporary use and pays tribute to the radical attitude of the architects Rossetti + Wyss.
