It was quite a week and weekends in the German-speaking lands, where Munich’s Various Others, Zurich Art Weekend, and Berlin Gallery Weekend all managed to coincide and jointly usher in the start of the season.

The second edition of Zurich Art Weekend provided some foreplay ahead of Art Basel. Alex Scrimgeour runs us through Zurich's standout shows, where he spotted painted angels, art games, vagina dentatas, and Don Quixote's horse.
