Art in public space


The unprivate space

The Institute for Art in Public Space Styria conducted twelve artists to carry out ten projects all over the district. The participating artists perceived unprivate space and used it as a venue.

The bridge above a public road connecting two semi-private FH-Joanneum buildings in Graz was the location for my project 'Durchfahrt' (driving through).
Two road signs were attached to the bridge each featuring an adverb 'hier' (here) and 'da' (there). The number of meters also on the signs showed the distance to the entrances of the FH-Joanneum buildings on either side of the road. By using a media, that usually structures and organises public traffic, a thought-provoking impulse is given whether the semi-private space of the FH-Joanneum Graz can be transformed into a public area.
