<rotor> center for contemporary art
(c) Margarethe Makovec
Together with Anton Lederer founding member and artistic director of < rotor > center for contemporary art, Graz. Contemporary visual art is always the starting point for our programmes, with an emphasis on art production that expressly deals with social, political, economical and ecological issues of our time. A dense network of links to organisations and artists from many European countries - with a particularly strong linkage to the Southeast European area have been established.
< rotor > presents contemporary art, provides essential content for discussion and communicates contemporary art to a broad public. As often as possible, the artists involved in the programme are enabled to produce new works.
Promoting cooperation and networked action are essential elements of the < rotor > philosophy. This concerns networking efforts within the art field but also means acting beyond the boundaries of art by involving people and organisations from different backgrounds in the programming.
The search for satisfactory methods of collaboration and possibilities of participation in artistic processes for the public in general or for specific target audiences is another main focus.
For < rotor >, the public space is an important setting to make art happen. Leaving the boundaries of the art space is used to actively bring people into contact with art and thus to expand the audience.
Margarethe joins us for the Art Space Connect Workshop on 07 November 2020
