The styrian autumn collaborates through the autumn and invents itself as usual, anew
With three major collaborations, the steirischer Herbst starts its programme announcement for autumn 2020: at the beginning is the big Ö1 cooperation, which will accompany large parts of the Paranoia TV project. Together with the Forum Stadtpark, the steirischer Herbst organizes a conference for practical criticism – utopia, which deals with the necessity of utopian thinking after the pandemic. And finally Out of Joint – the literature festival in the Styrian Autumn, which is organised jointly with the Literaturhaus Graz. Participants here include Jonathan Coe, Lisz Hirn, Konrad Paul Liessmann, Robert Pfaller and Kathrin Röggla.
In addition, there is a broad and rich parallel programme that takes place in partner institutions and cultural facilities in Graz. Among the participants are Neue Galerie Graz, Institut für Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Steiermark with Catrin Bolt, Das Planetenparty Prinzip, esc medien kunst labor, Forum Stadtpark, Grazer Kunstverein, Grätzelinitiative Margaretenbad and many more. Also, for the second year in a row, the festival STUBENrein will take place as a festival within a festival.
