Treppstein – come back
Treppstein were once world famous – from starving bohemians to stars of the art halls! For the first time, the artist duo speaks publicly about their friendship and the art career that began in the nineties at message salon. Treppstein is the art project of Selina Trepp and Esther Eppstein, which they created from 1995 to 1998. Since then, Treppstein has been in sporadic hiding. The conversation will be held in German and moderated by Joel Spiegelberg.
Selina Trepp (*1973 in Zurich), artist, lives and works in Chicago, USA.
Esther Eppstein (*1967 in Zurich) is the inventor and operator of message salon.
Joel Spiegelberg (*1991 in Brugg AG) is a freelance curator and art space operator, currently working as a trainee at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst
The message salon caravan (1998-2000) is the artwork of Esther Eppstein and contains documents about the first years of message salon as well as about the Zurich art scene from 1995 to 2000. In 2001 the artwork was purchased by the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst for the collection and has been exhibited in the museum since 2001, 2014 and 2023.
