About the exhibition

The exhibition Up into the Unknown traces the creation of the Kunsthaus Graz, exploring thereby the relationship between visionary ideas and their realisation. A preset time frame, technical limitations, tight budgets, functional demands, and also elements of chance all changed the conception. Nevertheless, the building still speaks of utopian-visionary moments, which even today can enable the imagination to take flight.

 

As commissioned works, contemporary artists tackle issues of change:

what has become of certain ideas and the attitudes connected with them?

How have social demands shifted?

What has remained?

 

With works by Archigram, Bollinger + Grohmann, Peter Cook, Colin Fournier, Jessica Hausner, Niels Jonkhans, Mischa Kuball, Vera Lutter, Anna Meyer, realities:united, Isa Rosenberger, Gernot Stangl and Arthur Zalewski

 

Display: Niels Jonkhans, Anna Lena von Helldorff (buero total)
