Once a year, < rotor > organizes an exhibition introducing up-to-date positions of artists working in Austria. Being on the road, traveling, visiting other places are fundamental aspects of the artistic contributions to this year’s selection. Yet we are not talking about travelogues or reportage covering faraway countries but about observations from different cultural contexts which are recontextualized in the frame of the exhibition. Thus manifold possibilities of interpretation open up for the viewers. And comparisons with what we have experienced ourselves elsewhere are inevitable.
Starting from 6 pm, openings take place on this day at Camera Austria, Kunstverein Medienturm, < rotor > and Grazer Kunstverein; referred to in short as CMRK.
