Cultural range and its physical manifestation in the form of buildings are the driving force and content of innovative city development and planning. Curated by Matthias Sauerbruch, the exhibition Culture:City focuses on this phenomenon, exploring the relationship between architecture and daily reality—is thereby also observing the paradigm of the ‘Bilbao effect,’ one of the examples is Kunsthaus Graz itself.
The exhibition contrasts great architectural building forms with civilian self-initiatives, alternative and dynamic cultural and art projects in urban districts or abandoned building complexes. Thus the Pompidou Centre or the Bilbao Guggenheim are set against such projects as 2-3 Straßen in the Ruhr region, or the neighbourhood initiative Detroit Soup.
