During the decades of 1960`s until the 1980´s Switzerland braced a period of massive protests detonated by the Swiss Youth and as a consequence , the country faced a substancial process of deterritorialization, which according to Deleuze and Guatarri is the "complex movement or process by which something escapes or departs from a given territory, where a territory can be a system of any kind : conceptual, linguistic, social or affective. "(A Thousand Plateaus, 1980). After some time, The Sovereign Power calmed down the riots and during the decade of the 90`s Switzerland seized a re-territorialized status. Kriegsmaschine is a project as part of a new , contemporary phase of deterritorialization in order to show "the other Zürich" by transforming a programmed , "well-behaved" urban space into something loud, vibrant and unexpected.
