The Summer Season at Grazer Kunstverein considers language, or the absence of it, as a potential starting point for deep-level communication in a fractured globe. Nadia Belerique’s summer residency in Graz sees the responsive development of a new sculptural installation based on the language of photography, albeit deconstructed and abstracted from the more traditional image-making process. At the same time, Christian Nyampeta creates a space for the study of the production and exchange of knowledge. He asks: what happens if words and meaning were subjected to prohibition? What synonyms could be created to replace them? A Graz based working group will be established to convene, discuss and translate throughout the duration of his exhibition. Cesare Pietroiusti’s booklet Non-Functional Thoughts will be reprinted for the first time in a bi-lingual German/English ‘double-decker’ edition (in collaboration with Mark Pezinger Verlag). The ideas contained within the publication first began to take shape over forty years ago, and continue to influence Pietroiusti’s trajectory as an artist. The launch of the 2018 edition will be accompanied by a workshop devised and led by the artist.
