Art: Historischer Autofriedhof Gürbetal

Sep 9th, 2008 by admin | 1

I watched TTT – Titel Thesen Temperamente on Sunday night and there was a really interesting report about a wonderful place in Switzerland. In a forest in the village of Kaufdorf in the Gürbetal valley near the capitol Bern a historic collegtion of cars from the 50s, 60s and 70s can be found rusting away and being overgrown by nature. You can read all about the history of this place here. It eventually came to being in the 1930s when Walter Messerli started trading with car parts and left the remains where they still are today. As the company of the current owner will be no more very soon, the local authorities want to get rid of this dump, which is what they consider it, by the end of this year.

But in 2007 a committee was founded by artists and other people who want to save this amazing place for the future. The premises can be visted and there is currently (until 12th October) an exhibition going on. For more information go to www.autofriedhof.ch.
