This extensive project allows residents of Graz to experience art in everyday life in all districts throughout the year. With the aid of this project, Grazer Kunstverein is broadening people’s understanding of where culture can be situated in our urban surroundings and which different forms of involvement are possible. As part of this project, twenty artists from more than seventeen nations are speculatively relocating the site of Grazer Kunstverein into urban space. The temporary events and art projects are taking place in public space with a close link to the cultural diversity of the seventeen districts.
Grazer Kunstverein at Palais Trauttmansdorff acts as an information centre, production site, office space and studio. This is the location of the headquarters—a system of modular structures commissioned to Edward Clydesdale Thomson. The separate elements can be taken along to the various venues around the city and serve as a catalogue of temporary architectures. Each of the speculative art associations embodies a different kind of idea: conceptual, aesthetic, performative and formal.
