The Open Modes proudly presents its 2016 programme:
Trial Mode 02: (Un)learning contemporary art – Building Synergies

Open Modes will take place as an intensive gathering weekend to explore and deepen on the ways art education could take or is already taking place within the city of Graz and beyond. Mapping the synergies of contemporary art production, working on their sustainability and validating an urban-open-curriculum will be some of the central points of this event.

With local and international guests coming together in an experimental condensed format with talks, inputs, workshops, durational performances and live-music interventions. The Open Modes Program and Methodologies for 2017 will be collectively outlined.


Admission free!
