Club Hybrid is an active scientific, artistic intervention and an open demonstration building in one: a place for experimenting, for exhibiting and representing, and for discourse.
The boom in housing construction in Graz is driven by monetary rather than social or ecological forces. The pressure on the urban sphere is growing, with public interests falling by the wayside.
During its run of 100 days, Club Hybrid questions current planning policies, drawing attention to forms of living and housing, and exploring ways of stretching and reinterpreting current limitations on space.
Engaging with neighbourhoods, the goal is to discuss and live ways of shaping and conquering living space in exhibitions, workshops and guest contributions.
Club Hybrid will evolve from a temporary event into a permanent fixture: experiments with alternative forms of housing, work and living will lead to a hybrid demonstration building that will be developed by the project sponsor MVD Austria in collaboration with Andreas Rumpfhuber (Expanded Design) and with the participation of the future users.
