A War in the Distance

Wars are inscribed into the history of steirischer herbst. The Cold War overshadowed its early years while later editions took place with the Yugoslav Wars right next door. This year, the festival deals with this relationship to war, its causes, and lasting effects.

A cooperation between steirischer herbst ’22 and Neue Galerie Graz / Universalmuseum Joanneum

For time immemorial, the region of Styria has been surrounded by wars, many of them only heard echoing in the distance. This autumn, steirischer herbst addresses this looming presence of far-off battles. In the summer, a prologue to the 55th edition focuses on Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine—a conflict whose relevance and proximity are now finally impossible to ignore.

In a special exhibition at Neue Galerie Graz running from 1 July to 1 August, steirischer herbst presents historical and contemporary video art and films. They offer a subjective, sobering, and human view of current events otherwise explained in military or geopolitical terms.
