PAPER CHASES
UP AND DOWN, BACK AND FORTH

Lendwirbel meets Annenviertel!
7 paper chases - surprises on the paths we tread every day


The initiators of the Streetgallery and of Annenviertel! have cooked up something very special for the visitors for the time of the Lendwirbel. Due to their knowledge and experience in the area of Lend / Gries / Annenviertel 7 people have been invited to guide the participants of the chase to places of special and, first and foremost, very personal interest.

To let oneself in for the perspectives of the people laying the trails opens up fresh perceptions, perspectives and interpretations of the urban space. Some legs of the chase are outdoors, at others interiors are turned inside out and the paper chasers are invited to the borders and thresholds of the known. Some tours are apt for exploring things on your own; others can be better experienced collectively.

So letís go to the different starting points and get the chase going! Where do I have to go, where is the next checkpoint and what to expect there? On which track will they lead me, the people who have come up with this tour? That way the city experience is really great fun!

Tip: Some of the paper chases can still be made or booked after the Lendwirbel. Contact: < rotor >, 0316 / 688306 or rotor@mur.at

CONCEPT: Franziska Hederer


where can I find a language, one that comes with me when I go and one that stands with me when I stand? one that doesn't do anything, which also doesn't pretend that everybody understands it and, also, that it understands itself, simply one that stands by my side when nobody understands me? maybe there where my home is?
at home. this word alone warms the cockles of the heart. it sounds so good, as if it were living inside me, like my language, as if it were singing inside me, like a beloved song. maybe the longing for home has stayed at home too.

PAPER CHASE 5

HAPPINESS WHERE ONE LOOKS, LISTENS OR SMELLS
WHEN: To experience during the Lendwirbel: from Monday, 3 May to Saturday, 8 May, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
STARTING POINT: Central Station Graz, 1.OG FITINN / entrance area
CONCEPT: Nicole Pruckermayr


The area around the Graz Train Station can be well explored from an unusual perspective – by ones and twos, or in a group. To take a break somewhere at a corner you like and take the atmosphere in is more than desirable. Perhaps you can socialize now and then but this is no must. Or just sit down at the starting point and keep an eye on what is going on. Information on how to move along is also available there. To bring along a camera or a notepad is also not the worst idea.
