Esther Eppstein is an artist and art educator and a pivotal figure in Switzerland's cultural life. 1996-2013 she ran her message salon in Zurich, a space for experimental art that soon became a legend and an institution. It was located in various buildings, all of them bound for demolition, and 1998/99 also in an old caravan. The caravan was later purchased by the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zurich for its permanent collection. Throughout its seventeen years, message salon was a cultural beehive humming with artists and art lovers. This new book is a review of the message salon's entire existence and a gallery of people making it what it was: young artists, whom Eppstein offered a first chance to present themselves, the more established ones who could re-invent themselves in this laboratory, and also the public and celebrities who came to admire, experience, and to see and be seen. Richly illustrated with some 800 photographs, Esther Eppstein - message salon is also an homage to an extraordinary personality. The essays tell the story and reflect on the significance of this unique social sculpture.

Esther Eppstein is a Swiss artist, curator, and the founder of message salon, a travelling space for experimental art practices and ideas. Kerim Seiler, born 1974, is a Swiss artist living and working in Zurich.
