The Open House series focusses on opening up Kunsthaus Graz in different artistic and social directions. Different types of exhibitions and communication – ranging from installations and performances to lectures and workshops – make it possible to work flexibly with local partners and enable a lively, discursive encounter with contemporary art, encouraging participation.
