Hafenkran (Harbour Crane), Zürich, Switzerland

Crane

Hafenkran

The Zurich Transit Maritime Art installation “Hafenkran” (harbour crane), was a 90 ton rusting crane which operated for more the 50 years in the port of Rostock in northern Germany, was installed from 2014-2015 on the banks of the river Limmat in Zurich. Its purpose was to “bring a feeling of the sea – and a sense of freedom – to landlocked Zurich”. Is (was) it art? Still being debated.
