Graz: always right in the middle

May 23, 2016
“the friendly alien“: That’s how the people of Graz and visitors to the city affectionately call the Kunsthaus. Like a giant raindrop, it fell to the city in 2003 when Graz was the European Capital of Culture. It is just one of a dozen cultural sites in Styria belonging to the Universalmuseum Joanneum. Here – on the right bank of the river Mur opposite the Schlossberg with its old clock tower – the avant-garde is flourishing, artists share their thoughts and ideas with art lovers, and there is a vibrant dialogue around contemporary art.
