In the exhibition all the works that were produced in the frame of workshops and participatory projects in spring and summer 2010 are on display. Exhibition venues are < rotor > and several locations in the Annenviertel area.
The city belongs to everyone, but who actually develops it? In the Annen district of Graz, a vibrant, very international part of the city, a wide variety of different forms of coexistence are being pragmatically tested every day, with resourcefulness and a gift for improvisation. The long-term “Annenviertel!” project uses a wide array of artistic and cultural strategies to demonstrate how this urban space, in which contrasting worlds are just a few steps away from each other, can be shaped and the voice of those who live here can be amplified.
For all the questions and problems facing this area, the challenge for those involved in the project is clear: to join forces to build a future in which transcultural coexistence has become normal and in which changes in the urban landscape as a result of immigration are not perceived as a threat. For the city is not – as some people would have us believe – conflict and fear, but above all an opportunity.
