We are delighted to participate with our sci-fi short film Contagious Whisper (US/UK 2020, 8min. dir. Kildall / Luksch) at the exhibition Badeverbot Welle 3, which will open Sept 24th; the vernissage will take place on Sept 27th.
Venue: Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus GrazPuchstrasse 41, 8020 Graz

Exhibition in Flux

Bathing in the crowd is going to be taboo for a long time to come, and social distancing will stay the order of the day. 

Responding to the COVID-19 lockdown, Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz has divided its 200 sqm exhibition space into a strict grid of 15 squares, within which artists have been invited to present their current works at an appropriate distance from others. 

Starting in July with the “1st wave“, now the 3rd wave spills over the space in the frame of steirischer herbst ´20 (www.steirischerherbst.at). The works were chosen from a broad range of applications in response to an open call for works. The jury consisted of: Katrin Bucher-Trantow (chief curator of Kunsthaus Graz), Birgit Kulterer (art historian, curator of the art collection of the City of Graz), Wenzel Mraček (art historian, cultural journalist, board member of Kunsthalle Graz).

The exhibition „Badeverbot” deals with enforced restrictions and their effects. The exhibition space is thus likewise locked into a grid pattern. The squares are like windows in a facade, which can be opened by viewers to afford them a glimpse into the inner state of things. The grid is fixed, but the contents are variable. This results in an exhibition in flux, with a steady stream of changing works.
