Utopia and Monument - Exhibition for the Public Space. steirischer herbst 2009 -2010
Sabine Breitwieser
UK Publication Date

The publication documents and reflects upon the two-year exhibition project Utopia and Monument at the steirischer herbst 2009 and 2010 in Graz. Focusing on two special themes - "The Privatization of Public Sphere" (2009), and "Virtuosity and Public Sphere" (2010) - ten artworks each year, making a total of 20 new works (installed for the duration of the respective exhibition) were commissioned for Graz. As a point of departure, two concepts were provocatively presented for discussion that had disappeared from the debate on public space: "utopia" as a space of thought, and the "monument" as a space of memory. The book documents the Artist's works and discusses them by numerous contribution from renown authors.
