Location: Joanneumsviertel Graz

Different approaches to the topic light in public space
Eight projects and installations in public space open up new perspectives – beyond the ordinary perception – in terms of lighting. Among others, at Joanneumsviertel, the artistic group Plex Noir created an audiovisual installation that results from the interplay of moving pictures and laser projections.

Also the Murinsel is going to shine in the course of Klanglicht: During the Klanglicht weekend, from the Murinsel and downstream to Hauptbruecke, a laser light wave, designed by the visual artists of OchoReSotto, is going to provide an exceptional visual experience of the river Mur.

The design of the installation is created in an interactive way by the observers: they are invited to influence the composition of the dynamic façade installation via their smartphones. Individually or in groups they can dynamically draw, play, dance and compose. It is based on the idea of making the mobile phone technology, that in principle cannot be seen, visible – in an esthetically attractive way.

The opening of ‘Licht 2017’ takes place on 21st April from 20 h – interested people can look at the real-time-study of Plex Noir until 21st May 2017. The other installations and projects are to be found in the entire city center within Designmonat Graz.

Inner city of Graz

Smart urban furniture of wood for digital natives and digital immigrants.
The aim of Smart Urban Privacy is to create a private retreat in urban space. CIS and Holzcluster Steiermark invited five Austrian designers to cooperate with five Styrian carpenters or wood manufacturing companies and to develop innovative urban furniture for Designmonat Graz.

The five prototypes that are developed in the course of the project, provide a temporary retreat at lively, public locations. Thus, the users are not completely cut off their environment, as they are still able to perceive the world outside. The main material is wood.

The smart furniture prototypes were created for digital natives, so to say people who were already born into the digital world, and also digital immigrants – those who got to know this world only as adults. Within Designmonat Graz 2017, they offer a retreat in public space at different locations of the inner city of Graz.

Moving design at your feet
Apart from their function as a historically grown element of design, in many cultures carpets do have a further function: they serve as a medium and even as a historical source, because very often carpets tell stories – and by far not just from the past. One of these modern stories is told by the Valerija Ilcuka’s carpet, in her case it is actually her own story. The graduate of Graphic Design designed and produced this particular biographic carpet in the course of her thesis at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. It reflects her moving, multi-cultural way of life, from her early childhood until today. It can also be seen at the shop of Gebhart Blazek.

The cooperation between the Graz-based jeweler Hans Schullin and the storyteller Folke Tegetthoff that has lasted for 17 years, resulted in a special project. Back then, Hans Schullin wanted to design jewelry as a bearer of an intimate message while Folke Tegetthoff had the idea to write a romance bearing the jewelry. The result is a handmade book of leather, limited to one hundred pieces, that contains a gripping love story by Folke Tegetthoff and a mysterious silver key, in which you can hide a personalized love message.

The Orange Age – an exhibition on media design of the 70s reviews a dynamic and highly creative era of the 20th century by showcasing selected objects and exhibits. Audio and TV devices, communication devices and office machines show how close (a lot of things still look familiar) and at the same time far (the analogue mode has disappeared once and for all) this period that was significant for the development of media as well as deign appears. The 1970s are – as the persistent retro trend suggests – as popular as no other decade.
All objects come from the private archive of Heinz M Fischer, who is in possesion of one of the most comprehensive historical media collections in Austria.

The exhibition is a cooperation with the Department of Media & Design of FH Joanneum. While at designforum Steiermark the exhibition deals with the communication tools of the past, speakers give a glimpse into the future of communication and media in the course of FH Joanneum Lecture Days. Presentation areas for the exhibits of ‘The Orange Age’ are provided by the carpentry of Josef Proedl, namely the HUBs, office furniture designed and made by Fantoni in Italy. The exhibition will be displayed in the following months at several locations, inter alia designforum Wien (Vienna) and designforum Vorarlberg.

Whereas analog techniques do no longer pay off economically for mass production, they boom in niches and artistic areas. Everybody, who would like to have a try in a print shop and composing room of the analog times instead of making use of digital creative options, has the possibility to do so within Designmonat Graz. The book printer Bauer opens the doors and the association DruckZeug offers three workshops in which interested guests can try out analog techniques.

Within this workshop with Thomas Maier the focus lies on the manual typesetting of a small print format, like a postcard. When working with lead type, the design parameters are subject to stringent criteria – precision is a must.
The participants can print the designed postcards on high-quality paper with a high grammage themselves.

At the end of the workshop, each participant should hold a set of self-designed postcards in her/ his hand.

For really perfectly typeset printing blocks, there will be the possibility to produce them in high-grade embossed printing (Letterpress) on a Heidelberger Tiegel.

Design Pieces of Neue Wiener Werkstaette: For more than 10 years the Styrian furniture manufacturer ‘Neue Wiener Werkstaette’ (NWW) has collaborated with Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner. As a result, there are several common products and projects which are fabulous examples of the cooperation between a producing company and a creative professional.

One of those products is FX10 Lounge chair. It already received many international awards and was included in the collections of MAK Wien and Hofmobiliendepot Wien. In the course of Designmonat 2017, Neue Wiener Werkstaette shows FX10 in Graz: its sharp-edged design impresses at first sight and only by sitting down, the furniture exposes its high level of comfort. The even surfaces form a closed shape that is sustained by the dynamic tension of a geometrical body that has become a kind of ‘sitting art’.

Shop portals in Graz from A to Z – a city tour through history
From A as in antiques to Z as in zoo: some letterings above the portals of Graz-based shops have achieved cult status, while others have disappeared from the urban landscape. Still, the ones having a close look can spot them in the cityscape here and there. Within Designmonat Graz, in the course of guided city tours, you can learn about old and new things and discover the city anew from a nostalgic perspective.

Based on the book cityabc graz, in which they present a shop for each letter of the alphabet, some stores are presented within the city tours. Apart from information on the partly already liquidated premises, the guides also provide funny anecdotes related to the city’s history. Starting at Annenviertel the one-and-a-half-hour Segway tours take you to the city center and back.

To hold on to change – Design exhibition at Schloss Hollenegg.
20 young designers deal with the topic Morphosis and show their relevant works at Schloss Hollenegg. Morphosis can be defined as the constant process of modification, the change that everything is subject to – from the organisms, inanimate objects, habits to even cultures. The exhibition displays how these modifications take place and how design can have an influence on Morphosis.

Based on this key idea, in the summer of 2016 two designers worked as ‘Designers in Residence’ for one week each at Schloss Hollenegg and let themselves be inspired by the environment and the history of the castle. Further 18 designers were invited in the fall of 2016 to also deal with the issue of Morphosis and to submit works for the exposition.

The main venue for the event will be the ceremonial hall of Schloss Hollenegg, whose history dates back to the 12th century. Founded by Alice Stori Liechtenstein, the project ‘Schloss Hollenegg for Design’ is a cultural association that supports young, aspiring designers.

Whereas analog techniques do no longer pay off economically for mass production, they boom in niches and artistic areas. Everybody, who would like to have a try in a print shop and composing room of the analog times instead of making use of digital creative options, has the possibility to do so within Designmonat Graz. The book printer Bauer opens the doors and the association DruckZeug offers three workshops in which interested guests can try out analog techniques.

This workshop with Anja Schwendenwein and Anna Weninger is addressed to people interested in crafts. This year, they present visible thread stitching that are suitable for advanced learners – with a lot of possible variations, complementary to the coptic stitch binding – but also for beginners.

A conceptual and systematic approach is the base of both, design and manual work. Hence, the participants are asked to design their own book with the help of the demonstrated technique and professional support of the book binders. An analog tool as a contrast to the fast moving nature of the digital world – a long-term storage of data, ideas, and knowledge. Smart Design – Handmade Production.

At the end of the workshop, each participant should be able to hold an appealing and functional book in her/ his hands.

All is hand-made and that is what makes those prints special. They are unique, there are no digital templates and after the printing, the set is also taken off, which means that a post-production is just possible with the same effort as done for the original copy.

From the very beginning of the conception, the participants do already deal with analog questions such as for example which font size would perfectly match the selected paper format. They are attended and supported throughout the entire process of typesetting and printing.

At the end of the workshop, each participant should be able to take one large-size print (and various copies of it) home.

Haus der Architektur Graz presents an exhibition on the topic of architecture in the education sector.
Within the past years, numerous buildings for educational institutions have been constructed, rebuilt or supplemented through annexes. The exhibition ‘Wenn gute Schulen Schule machen – Bildungsbau als Zukunftsinvestition (When good schools set a precedent – Buildings for educational institutions as an investment into the future) displays the development of the architectural concepts behind those projects. Simultaneously, they are compared to the developments of the 1960s and 1970s.

Haus der Architektur Graz, in cooperation with Gebaeude- und Baumanagement Graz GmbH and Stadtbaudirektion of the City of Graz, invites interested people to take a look at the development process of the projects.

The expansion of the various buildings for educational institutions within the past years was caused, amongst others, by the increase in population in Graz. Preparing for the building program, the architects were selected via competitions and they created architecture that can stand comparison with any international building.

In the course of the exhibition, which opens on 11th May, there are parallel events and discussions. From 12th May to 11th June interested guests can gain insight into the design processes of the new buildings and converted pieces of architecture at HdA at Mariahilferstrasse 2.

Only after the Carmelite convent, that had been there since 1643, was demolished in 1934, they created an empty lot that was not developed anymore. Finally, the location was used as a major bus terminal for many decades and today, Andreas-Hofer-Platz is a ‘non-space’.

The workshop is a cooperation of Creative Industries Styria with xSITE. The aim is to apply a new meaning to the square in the middle of Graz and to make it a place of relaxation and interaction – an outdoor living room for all people of Graz.
xSITE is a constantly developing platform for visual communication. The workshop is hosted by Ingeborg Bloem, Stefan Hengst and Klaus Kempenaars.

FH JOANNEUM lecture by Jennifer Morone

15th May 2017 | 18.15
Location: Stiftskapelle Raubergasse | Joanneumsviertel, 8010 Graz

Life Means Business
This lecture is about using design as a medium to catalyze social justice. Whether it be a single act of disobedience or a strategically planned agenda that unfolds over time, design and designers have an important role to play.

The lecture will introduce the concept and mechanisms of influencing relevant thought and action through design. Comparative examples of past and present designs for justices and injustices will be examined as well as tactics and methodologies to be employed when designing disobedience.

Jennifer Lyn Morone is a conceptual artist and designer who makes work that seeks to disrupt. Research based, spanning various mediums and multi-disciplinary, the work examines the interrelations of political, economic, and technological designs and their impacts of society.

Her work has been exhibited, screened and presented internationally, recently at the Martin Gropius Bau (Berlin), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), Carroll/Fletcher Gallery (London), Victoria & Albert Museum (London), HeK (Basel), and the Saint-Etienne Design Biennale (Saint-Etienne). Morone holds a BFA in Sculpture and Art History from SUNY Purchase (New York, USA) and an MA in Design Interactions from The Royal College of Art (London, UK).

Installation
Opening: 16th May 2017 | 18.00 Uhr
Duration: 17th to 28th May 2017
Location: Jakoministraße 29, 8010 Graz

Interacting in public space – on Jakoministrasse.
To counteract social isolation and foster interaction – this is the aim of the installation ‘Vitrine Intercommunication’ on Jakoministrasse, where the virtual and the real world merge. By means of a KinectSensor pedestrians are scanned and become part of the installation, which is projected to the window of a vacant shop.

Thus, the vitrine takes on the function of a display for the virtual space, in which observers finally discover themselves: at first the window is dark and when someone passes by it blinks. If you stop, the colors and projections change and by moving you can have an influence on the installation.

The project is implemented by artist Anahi Meyer of SomeDesigners and is supported by the organization ‘Jakominiviertel’. From 16th to 28th May the installation is active on Jakoministrasse and invites you to interact in public space.

Registration: office[at]cis.at

Smart Services – Smart Future
Our working spaces do severely change due to universal digitalization and interlinking. For the individual working environments of single employees this means increasing complexity, required flexibility and more often personal overload. Occasionally, the professional daily routine can just be mastered with the help of further complex technical assistance systems.

How can smart services support people in the smart production of the future? And what if there is no smart service available? In the course of a workshop called ‘Smart Services for Smart Production-Hands-On’ with Hannes Walter of the company Evolaris, those questions are historically contextualized and the participants – by means of Microsoft Hololens, Google Glass and so more – get the opportunity to visualize the smart services of the smart production of the future.

Milli Lux has specialized in making textile lampshades, whose shaping is not done by a kind of wire or plastics but by the fabric itself. For Designmonat Graz the owner and lampshade designer Barbara Stoelzl came up with something special: ‘Shirt Rescue’ emerged in the course of a project dealing with a critical examination of the clothing industry around the topics of fair salaries, resource-friendly production, environmental pollution and more. Thereby, they make lampshades out of old T-shirts and thus every luminaire becomes a unique piece.

PABUKU – how do you start a greeting card label
‘PABUKU The Queer Paperie’ is celebrating its birthday: Two years ago the by now awarded greeting card label was founded by Ute Baurecker und Ulla Klopf. Due to this anniversary, PABUKU invites graphics- and design-conscious people to have an insight into the development process and buildup of the label on 19th May.

PABUKU offers a broad range of greeting cards which show designs far away from classical, heteronormative stereotypes. Hence, also – and especially – members of the LGBTIQ-Community can find something at PABUKU, if they are looking for appealing greeting cards for their beloved ones.
When designing the cards, graficdesigner Klopf and artist Baurecker aspire to quality, attention to detail and storytelling in terms of graphics.

They also point out that external support and good contacts are a crucial factor for their success: representative for their partners, they present the paper factory Fedrigoni and the printing company ‘1adruck – verrueckt nach Ideen’.

Interested people can pass by on 19th May in the open-air area of Capperi at Mariahilferstrasse 12 from ca. 15.00-18.00 – the event takes place in the ‘Salettl’.

Location: Teppichgalerie Geba | Hans-Sachs-Gasse 3, 8010 Graz

‘Design meets Tradition’ is once more the motto of GEBA, the Graz-based carpet gallery
30 years ago Harald Geba opened his carpet showroom in the middle of the old city center of Graz, which is now portrayed in an own carpet collection. Together with New York-based designer Klaus Kempenaars, Harald Geba designed and implemented a collection of rugs – of course of mere fair-trade quality – on the topic ‘Graz’.

Designing the carpets, they did combine architectural elements of buildings such as the Murinsel, Kunsthaus, Messe Halle Graz, Lichtschwert, as well as buildings on the main square and other elements like parts of a chain armor or a traditional costume. Furthermore, they incorporated works of composers related to Graz and elements of the heliocentric system of Johannes Kepler.

The Graz Collection unites timeless design and traditional craftsmanship as well as prime knotting skills. Tibetan highland wool is processed by hand right from the shearing to the knotting in two Nepal-based workshops. Additionally, there are natural materials used, such as Chinses silk or linen.

The Graz-based optics company Brillenquartier of Christian Potisk present the new collection of glasses and sunshades by Mykita. What is unusual about the creations of the German label, that was founded by four friends in 2003, is the joint, which does without any screws or solder connections. Instead, the components are bowed and folded, so that the largely minimalistic eyewear can actually be ‘bent’.

DIGITAL REVOLUTION – how the ‘new channels’ change our visual communication.
Just as letterpress destroyed monopoles and introduced democratization, now the digital revolution does change our life. Production tools for everybody and the end of editorship provide ‘too much information’ for an overstrained generation. Research becomes a luxury, which is the breeding ground for fake news and alternative realities. Will we be able to find audio-visual answers or do we degenerate into consumers of marketing-driven stories of new monopolists? Which impact does this change have on designers? Which skills will be needed in the future?

Exhibition of Styrian labels in terms of new and not to be categorised music.
Parallel to the VN:11 Festival, in cooperation with the arts collective Rhizom, there is the exhibition ‘Exiles on Mainstream – Styrian labels in terms of new and not to be categorized music’. What makes this exhibition special is the fact that the content is successively and collectively developed by all labels. Amongst others, there are labels such as chmafu nocords, GOD records, Rock is Hell records, Interstellar records, epilepticmedia and Numavi Records participating.

The single labels with all their similarities and differences present themselves – not mainstream at all – by portraying their current status through an installation of videos, posters and projections. At Listening Sessions, the labels present extracts of their productions. Furthermore, within the format ‘Statement & Discourse’, people take a critical look at the production and work conditions regarding independent music productions in the city and at the countryside.

Innovative sound design – new tones and unexpected music experiences
The visitors of this year’s V:NM Festival can expect 35 concerts on four days. The festival, which intentionally is not curated, offers a stage to new tones, as only compositions will be performed that have not been published yet.

Also this year, the audience can get involved with unexpected music experiences at three different event locations, namely Forum Stadtpark, ESC-Medienkunst Labor and Cafe Stockwerk,. In doing so, the visitors can expect new approaches to jazz and classical music as well as electronic and experimental music. The festival’s aim is to spread new music and to enable a cultural exchange. Amongst others, there are ensembles performing that actually emerged from such a cultural dialogue, the festival ‘ALPENGLOW – Styria meets Trondheim’ in summer 2016.
Parallel to the festival, in cooperation with the cultural collective Rhizom, there is the exhibition ‘Exiles on Mainstream – Steirische Labels im Bereich neuer und nichtzuordenbarer Musiken (Styrian labels in the field of new and non-assignable music styles)’. The finale of the festival is the big improvisation orchestra on the last day of the event.

Location: OPEN.LAB Reininghaus
The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 20 people.
Registration until 21th May: contact[at]breatheearth.net

19.00: Presentation of the workshop results followed by a discussion with the title „In the air we are all united“ – Design interactions between public, city and nature“

Design the climate and the weather yourself – with Breathe Earth Collective and Clara Robledo.
In the course of the open workshop, 20 participates get the opportunity to design the climate and the weather in miniature by creating ‘Micro Mundos’, hence little worlds, in terrariums. Those Micro Mundos should help retrace macro topics on a small-scale base and understand global climate issues better. By learning how the balance between plants and the air-water-cycle in the terrariums works on a small scale, the environmental awareness of the participants should be increased.

The workshop is supported by Austrian ‘Breathe Earth Collective’, that aims at creating ‘Breathing Spaces’ in cities with a high level of air pollution, and Columbian anthropologian, gardener and botany expert Clara Robledo. Together with her studio ‘La Savia’, Robledo has been working on this design project, that is now the base for the workshop, for some years. The goal is to give people an idea of the nutrients provided by nature.

With the help of the project they also want to create a link between the cities of Graz and Medellín, the home town of Robledo. In Latin America, Medellín counts among the cities with the highest air pollution
