KULTUM. Center for contemporary art and religion

Cultural Centre of the Minorites

The KULTUM shows contemporary art with a special focus on religion, spirituality and existential issues.

In the rooms in the historic Minorite Monastery in Graz, which were redesigned in 2010, curated themed exhibitions, individual presentations and collections that have emerged from the exhibitions since 2000 are shown.

Works from this are sorted into ten imaginary museum rooms that illuminate different aspects of religion in contemporary art: the fragility of truth, a new look at Christian iconography today, ethics and aesthetics, the medialization of faith, fundamentalism and religion, the abyss of existence (and belief), death and finiteness, birth and beginning, medialization of the image and the (im) possibility of putting God in the picture today.

With these perspectives, since 2010 curator Johannes Rauchberger, who has curated the art program since 2000, has been building a collection that currently comprises around 700 works.

Manfred Erjautz: THINGS

The language of things, the measurement and at the same time the contesting of
time are at the center of the large personal works by the Graz-born and Vienna-
based sculptor Manfred Erjautz (*1966) in the KULTUM. The “things” mean dozens
of small table sculptures and clocks, a more than 50-part dance of death series that
the artist has just completed based on the well-known Basel dance of death, floating
stones, floating bodies and floating skeletons in “blind flight”, one sunken Earth and a
large metal circle on which a dragon rotates
