About the

What appears to some as a nonsensical imperative is immediately recognised by others as a mnemonic aid from their school days.


N-O-S-W, (N North, O East, S South, W West), in this order, four routes from the starting point Graz in the cardinal directions will be explored. Launched in 2006 by the Institute for Art in Public Space, the four Sunday tours are taking place for the 10th time this year.


The focus is on the exploration of permanent and temporary art projects initiated or accompanied by the Institute, as well as historical works of art in public space and raising questions about their representational function and social interaction.


The 2024 excursions deal with the dimension of “time”, which determines all of our lives and simultaneously is so difficult to grasp.


Conceived, travelled, packaged and accompanied by Alexandra Riewe.
