The Toilet in the Flushlight

Touring exhibition about water and nutrient cycles

Les excréments quotidiens d'une personne contiennent suffisamment de nutriments pour faire pousser trois carottes ou la quantité de céréales nécessaire à la fabrication de 2,5 baguettes. Un potentiel énorme, mais comment l'utiliser et qu'advient t-il de nos excréments après avoir tiré la chasse d'eau ?

L'exposition Flushlight abordera ces questions à partir du printemps 2024 et présentera des solutions innovantes telles que les toilettes à compost, les engrais à base d'urine ou le recyclage de l'eau dans toute la Suisse.

Screening of Holy Shit

On World Water Day – March 21, 2024 – Eawag-Sandec, Blue Communities Switzerland, the Reformed Church of Zurich and VaLoo invite you to the Water Church in Zurich! We shine the Flushlight on our daily business and what happens to it after flushing. Flush and go was yesterday!

The documentary “Holy Shit” shows what happens to our digested food after it has left our bodies and raises the question of whether it is waste or rather a resource that can be reused. Director Rubén Abruña explores this question in an investigative and entertaining search through 16 cities on 4 continents.

The film will be framed by an introduction by Rubén Abruña and a panel discussion (see flyer). So that all the questions raised by the film and the panel can be discussed until the end, VaLoo invites you to an aperitif in the foyer of the Wasserkirche afterwards! The panel and the thematic aperitif build a bridge from the global issues in the film to Switzerland and show what is already being done and what is still needed for Sch#!$e to help us save the world.

OLMA

VaLoo is exhibiting at Olma from October 12 to 22. The exhibition shows how nutrient and water cycles can be closed in Switzerland.

The efficient use of resources is becoming increasingly important in Switzerland, too, as climate change, water scarcity, eutrophication, urbanization, heat stress, loss of biodiversity, fertilizer shortages and environmentally harmful fertilizer production pose major challenges for society. With the “Carrot-Loo”, VaLoo is therefore drawing attention at Olma to the great potential of circular sanitation systems. For each urination, enough nutrients are excreted to produce three carrots. The Olma appearance is the forerunner of the touring exhibition “Flushlight”, which will start in spring.

Êtes-vous intéressé.e.s par des sanitaires plus responsables ? Voulez-vous mettre en lumière le  "Petit coin" avec nous ? Nous serons en tournée dans toute la Suisse, à partir d'avril 2024. N'hésitez pas à prendre contact avec nous!
