These can be old posters or catalogues in the archive or “My Documents” on the digital hard disk or memories in our “head”. Does that necessarily mean that those things we don’t store or remember cannot even be part of the way we see ourselves?
Let us whisk you away to the history and stories of steirischer herbst, compare your own memories with the objects in our archive and discover blind spots! We’ll join you in this search.
Meeting point: GrazMuseum

On request, school classes and groups can work on the exhibition “Prometheus Unbound” in the popular “Kulturelle Brille” workshop based on questions of perspectivity, value orientation, and cultural exchange: hands on and, obviously, unbound!
The steirischer herbst archive comprises documents and objects from fifty years of festival production. On request, school classes and groups can forage among press releases, posters and flyers, programme booklets and special editions and compare their own personal memories with the “actual historical artefacts”. Why was the Rusty Nail a scandal at the time, the Light Sword incredibly radical? Do major scandals vanish from the public eye and become part of the familiarity and triviality of public space unnoticed? Would these projects still have the same inflammatory potential today? Armed with smartphones and Polaroid cameras, you produce images in the present and blend them with historical material.
