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
