Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz, Austria
The FORUM STADTPARK is a place of production and presentation for contemporary art and socio-political discourse. This house, which is organized as an artists association, stands for a expanded definition of art and for an intersectional work in the areas Architecture, Literature, Fine Arts, Film, Music, Theatre, Performance, Discourse and Politics.
Being a laboratory and a platform for numerous scenes of the Austrian and international cultural production is the claim of this house. The FORUM STADTPARK was created in 1959 among others by Othmar Carli, Gustav Zankl, Siegfried Neuburg, Emil Breisach and Günter Waldorf. They adapted the empty „Stadtpark Cafe“ for artistic events. Therefore the name FORUM STADTPARK describes the action group as well as the place with the address Stadtpark 1.
Today about 150 events take place every year in FORUM STADTPARK – the bigger part with free entrance. Besides the house is accessible barrier-free, uses Open Source Software, is powered by green electricity and is smoke-free.
