The FORUM STADTPARK is a place of production and presentation for contemporary art. This house, which is organized as an artist’s association, stands for a expanded definition of art and for an intersectional work in the following areas
Architecture, Literature, Fine Arts, Photography, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, Performance, Theory.
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 190 events take place every year in FORUM STADTPARK – the bigger part with free entrance.
Julian Palacz. WERK 14 - Handle With Care
Julian Palacz, whose artistic practice primarily deals with the power and mechanics of surveillance, changes his premise for "Handle with Care" at Forum Stadtpark. Instead of pointing out surveillance, he himself becomes the instance that records and documents without being asked, sending out broadcasts prepared with cameras and microphones. The result is a value-free look behind the scenes of the shipping system. Only at first glance do the imposing images reveal a rhythmic choreography;a closer look, however, reveals a regime of strict efficiency in which there is hardly any room for people.

Good art in one's own four walls has never been as important as it is today! Museums and exhibition houses have to be closed temporarily due to the pandemic. So why not bring interesting Styrian artists home: the initiative Kunstverleih offers works by over 30 artists for loan – very uncomplicated and affordable! The exhibition with all available works of the Initiative Kunstverleih will take place from May 12 to 16, 2021 in the salon of the FORUM STADTPARK.
