Democracy and Peace on the Streets


Opening: September 2018

Discourse Platform 2: Temporary KiöR projects in Graz
Organisation and project management: Nicole Pruckermayr

Spread over several years, the art, research and peace project has been set up as inter-disciplinary, and is engaged with public space in the city of Graz. With a view to the commemoration year 2018 (100 years since the end of the First World War and the proclamation of the First Republic, the centenary of general suffrage for men and women, the 80th anniversary of the ‘Anschluß’ or annexation of Austria to the ‘Third Reich’, 70 years of Human Rights), the project examines the state and future of democracy and freedom as it is lived, taking as its example Conrad-von-Hötzendorf-Straße.

In September 2018, temporary art-in-public-space projects lasting two to three weeks will be presented by the participating artists, the venue being Conrad-von-Hötzendorf-Straße, with and within the public institutions and buildings located there (such as Lebenshilfe (social services), the Kunsthalle Graz, the stadium, cinema, city district centre, etc.).
