climate change swiss german (2017) poster, 11 x 17 in

Originally working to have the entire album's lyrics available in the languages of the four countries surrounding Basel: Germany, Italy, France and Switzerland, Shirt eventually settled on having only the lyrics to "Climate Change" translated to Swiss German, by a friend Nicholas Matusz. Months later, Nicholas would explain to Shirt that in fact, Swiss German, a dialect spoken in the German-speaking part of Switzerland and in some Alpine communities in Northern Italy, is vastly different from standard German whereas it has no codified use of the language and/or "correct" spelling of certain words.
