Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus Graz

Es schlägt 13
Kulturen und Religionen im “Triesterviertel”

(When the Clock Strikes 13: Cultures and Religions in the “Triesterviertel”)

Child-eating elites, alternative election results, esoteric promises of salvation: the new millennium seems to be turning away from science and information on a grand scale. Wouldn’t it just be more logical to engage with prescientific explanations of the world rather than desperately searching for answers to QAnon? On the occasion of its 13th anniversary, Schaumbad immerses itself in the world of numbers and embarks on a search for intersections and areas of friction between religions and cultures—for instance, ideologies and traditions of thought.

Artists from the Freies Atelierhaus and their colleagues explore the district with the highest migration rates in the city. Between the mosque, the African free church House of Prayer Mission, and the Catholic church of St. Johannes, in backyards, parks, and pubs, projects are being developed that address Schaumbad’s neighborhood through shared “deeds, words, and works.”

Artists: Alexandra Gschiel, hoelb/hoeb, Maryam Mohammadi, Keyvan Paydar, Markus Wilfling
