Stroke and Thread


Curated by: Monika Holzer-Kernbichler

In 2017 a new series is launched with the title ‘Big Wirbel’, which under the motto of Material and Technique will annually create a two-day focal point designed to extend the exhibition programme in terms of contents. In 2017 the focus will be textiles.


Starting points in the Kunsthaus are the exhibition with Erwin Wurm as well as the cooperation Clothes Make the Man with the Institute of Art History at Karl-Franzens-University Graz and the art initiative ‘Clothes works of the working city Graz’.


On Fridays the theme is introduced by means of theoretical input. Then on Saturdays and Sundays the wider public of all ages is invited free of charge to watch, design and try out for themselves. In Stroke and Thread, artists together with cooperation partners from Graz tackle a comprehensive, participatory programme in the whole of the Kunsthaus, all revolving around textiles in art.
