***TERMINATED**** Poll: The police burnt our tail fin - how to proceed?

Deutsche Version dieses Polls

The police has ordered to remove and burnt our tail fin (without trying to get in contact with Bury the Jumbo first.

We have been surprised. Our URL: www.burythejumbo.com was clearly visible on both sides of the tail fin. BTJ’s contact details are in the top level navigation on our web site. We could have moved the installation in 2 hours.

The Law of Switzerland protects our property. For example if you are parking in a no parking area the police is not allowed to burn your car. From our point of view, the act of art demolition was illegal.

We suggested to find a solution without pressing criminal charges to the police, if they would pay the fix cost (CHF 8,000.- to CHF 10,000.-) of the tail fin and would help us to build up a new one. This would have been a good deal for the police. Our art work from more than 20 artists over approximately 2 years is much more worth than CHF 10,000.-. Especially because this piece of art has been exoposed at international art exhibitions. We are a community and we want to bury a real Jumbo-jet as a symbol for our new form of a friendly togetherness. The suggested deal could have been proof of our friendly togetherness. But the police didn‘t accept our offer.

We have advises from 2 advocates from our community to go to court. Even though we have to expect that the police will try to charge us for the placement of the tail fin. They are supporting us. Together we have prepared the following DEMAND FOR A PENALTY

THIS POLL ENDS ON Jan 27 2011.

***TERMINATED*** The Police burnt our tail fin - how to proceed?

After exhibition in Hotel Atlantis we placed the tail fin in the public space again. A few days later, when the Captain has wanted to store the tail fin, the installation wasn't there.

The police has ordered to remove and burn the tail fin without trying to get in contact with Bury the Jumbo first. You can read the police's e-mail conversation. Without going into details too much: the Captain is freaking out.

We are surprised. Our URL: www.burythejumbo.com was clearly visible on both sides of the tail fin. The contact details are in the left hand navigation on our web site. If somebody want to get in contact with BTJ you don't have to be sherlock holmes.

The Law of Switzerland protects our property. For example if you are parking in a no parking area the police is not allowed to burn your car. In our opinion the act of art demolition was illegal.

How do you want to proceed?

  • to press criminal charges against the City of Zurich and try to get $ 1'000'000 (this may take us just 3 years...)
  • firstly to engage the police in conversation and secondly to ask if they kindly help us to build up a new tail fin (their work will definitely be conform to the road traffic act)

Just for your information - 7 years ago Bury placed an official garbage bag (Züri-Sack) on the street. A half-day before he was allowed to place it. He just didn't think about the official waste removal time table. The police was researching and found a letter with the adress of Bury in the garbage bag - "igittigitt" (engl. = disgusting). Finally Bury had to pay a penalty of CHF 250.- and got a complaint.

What we want to say is that they CAN find you if they WANT to find you.¨

***Terminated***Squated Hotel Atlantis: new space for culture

The building of the former hotel Atlantis Sheraton in Zurich has been squated. The goal of the activists is to offer this space as a place for  artists. A place to work and to live together and to realise non-commercial projects.

This goal is in line with the vision of Bury the Jumbo. As an act of solidarity we should show up with our tail fin at the lobby of hotel Atlantis.

This poll will end on 27. Oktober, 20:00.

***TERMINATED*** Hyperactivity - Yes, we walk!

After a very encouraged discussion in our forum, we have determined our action for the exhibition Hyperactivity: Funeral March Neuchâtel.

We pull the tail fin by our own hands from Zurich to Neuchâtel. 150Km in 7 days. Read the attached concept.

Häne (Duo.), Bury and the Captain will rebuild a lighter version of the tail fin by fibre glass. After all it's up to them to pull this vehicle (200 Kg)! Or do you support them? You are welcome to give them a helping hand for some hours or days.

Creative individuals are invited to collaborate. You can put your artwork onto the tail fin, perform next to it or on it... We will stop over in many cities (Aarau, Olten, Solothurn, Biel) and have a nice party. Dates to be defined. The installation is presented in Neuchâtel for 2 weeks, besides many other artists.

This poll will end on 31. May 2010.
