Who will see that Johanna has lunch on the
table after school? Where can Sam go if things get too cramped for him
at home? Who looks after Aisha’s children while she is attending
the German course? Where does Ali meet his friends to play football? Where
can Marion turn if everything becomes too much for her at home? Where
do Amina and Nadia find room to dance? Who is Milan calling when he wants
to talk? Where can Lili feel free?
In spring 2019, the project “Wolke” (Cloud) was launched,
an artistic dialogue with people who visit the Department for Youth and
Family of the Municipality of Graz and its branch offices or cooperate
with them. The project team, consisting of artists, architects and cultural
anthropologists, wanted to use artistic means to provide an insight into
the personal support networks of young people and families.
Now the results of the many conversations within the framework of this
project will be presented: the artists Adina Camhy and Coline Robin have
created an expansive installation in the staircase of the Department for
Youth and Family, a large mobile based on the conversations. Five booklets
for the young and the young at heart are published to accompany the project,
each containing many drawings, quotes from conversations and further in-depth
Exciting impressions await the guests of the presentation, a delicious
buffet prepared by Jugend am Werk and a musical programme by students
of the BORG Monsberger secondary school. The artists Adina Camhy and Coline
Robin will report on the background, development and significance of the
project, and there will be short speeches by City Councillor Kurt Hohensinner,
former President of the Styrian State Parliament Kurt Flecker and Head
of Department Ingrid Krammer. As a participant of the project, Anton Lederer
from < rotor > will be the moderator and guide through the evening.
