Martin Creed (Everything is going to be alright, 1999/2012)
Since winning the Turner Prize in 2001 Martin Creed has been one of Great Britain’s best-known artists. His works are distinguished by a very conceptual, minimalist treatment of materials and issues. For ART AND THE CITY Creed has revisited a work he created back in 1999. "Everything is going to be alright" is a laconic expression that tends to be used in times of crisis, as a general call not to give up. In Zürich, it acquired a special significance during the youth revolts around 1980 and in the context of the Wohlgroth activists, where the slogan «Alles wird gut» became very popular.
