Open Modes is a growing network of art spaces and artists in Graz dealing with practice and reflection for the exchange of artistic skills and strategies – in a time where not only art education, but also mainstream education systems are in question at large.
The goal of Open Modes 2015 is to reveal the (im)material, fluid educational institution ‘City’ in all its complexity and disparity. How could we transform informal flows of knowledge transfer into resources for all? How to construct spaces for art? Open Modes is a platform for methodological and cultural research. The programme, at the same time, is an invitation to all Grazers to share their ideas and wishes about the city.
