Centre for Contemporary Art

< rotor > is a center for contemporary art located in Graz, Austria. We communicate contemporary art to a broad public, focusing on artistic works that explicitly deal with the social, political, ecological and economic questions of the present day.

Promoting cooperation and networked action are essential elements of the < rotor > philosophy. This concerns networking efforts within the art field but also means acting beyond the boundaries of art by involving people and organisations from different backgrounds in the programming.

The search for satisfactory methods of collaboration and possibilities of participation in artistic processes for the public in general or for specific target audiences is another main focus.

For < rotor >, the public space is an important setting to make art happen. Leaving the boundaries of the art space is used to actively bring people into contact with art and thus to expand the audience.

Chapter 4: Beyond the Tangible

This exhibition concludes the four-part series “Beings & Creatures”. Chapter 4 is dedicated to the sphere of the intangible, the transcendental and the spiritual. The works of the participating artists trace the forces that influence the course of the world, situate deities of past times in the present, reproduce mythological figures, lend ritual practices a contemporary face or expose figures in free-flowing forms.
