Grazer Kunstverein is moving!


Together with the Grazer Kunstverein I’m conducting a feasibility study aimed at speculatively re-locating the institution. Throughout 2020 and 2021 we will host 17 temporary kunstvereins across Graz. Breaking open the traditional model of a Kunstverein grounded in one place the project looks to the future in thinking what could a Kunstverein be in a feasibility study that is both a question to its members and to Graz, and a position from which to take action.
The idea of moving presents us with an opportunity to rethink the role and function of a Kunstverein and the position of art in an urban environment. What do we do and for whom do we do it? A central Depot at the Grazer Kunstverein acts as an information point, incubation hub, gathering place and evolving documentation space for all related activities, providing a permanent working site and touchstone for a kaleidoscope of exploratory events across the city throughout the year. In the Depot a series of objects made by me will accumulate over the year. Each object is a reflection of one of the 17 feasibility study sites where we’ve invited an artist show.

Van elk werk, dat via de Kunstambassade verkocht wordt, schenkt de kunstenaar 20% van het verkoopbedrag aan het Solidariteitsfonds dat wordt verdeeld onder de deelnemende kunstenaars.
