The cross-epoch exhibition includes works by around 100 artists from all over the world. In a cross-house cooperation, the theme of the exhibition is presented equally in the HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark and the Neue Galerie Graz, with each institution showing spectacular positions. While, for example, an absurd mirror cabinet by the Dutch artist Gabriel Lester, which was created especially for the exhibition project, occupies a central place in the Neue Galerie Graz, the large main room of the HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark becomes the stage for a monumental installation by the US artist Jim Shaw.
