No matter what it's called in the different contexts: group-related misanthropy, ethnic profiling, racism— ”The last remnant of decency requires everybody to stand up against it.” (Michael Köhlmeier).

In the fourth and for the time being final part of the exhibition series Guerrilla of Enlightenment, works by artists are shown that deal with the equivalence of all human beings with regard to their dignity and their rights.

This exhibition is dedicated to the
Migrants’ Advisory Board of the City of Graz

The phrase "Guerilla der Aufklärung" (Guerrilla of Enlightenment) is used by courtesy of Doron Rabinovici and has been taken from the text "Aktion und Artikulation. Das Bestehen des Republikanischen Clubs" published in "Von der Kunst der Nestbeschmutzung - Dokumente gegen Ressentiment und Rassismus seit 1986", Löcker Verlag, 2009.
