»rotor. Art, neighbourhood and self-empowerment« with Margarethe Makovec and Anton Lederer (rotor Graz)
Margarethe Makovec and Anton Lederer from the Art Center rotor > in Graz speak about their projects and strategies of acting within a broad network and discuss possible perspectives of the station urbaner kulturen.
rotor > is an association for contemporary art based in Graz, Austria, and was founded in 1999. The association’s activities take place in Graz and participates in, organises or co-organises projects in Syria, Austria and many other European countries.
A strong focus on cooperation has always been an essential element of the rotor > philosophy, as well as acting in networks. This applies to networking within the art field but also, and perhaps even more importantly, to acting beyond the confines of art and involving individuals and organisations working in the most diverse fields in the conception of the programmes. Also characteristic for their work is an ongoing and committed search for satisfactory collaboration methods and possibilities of participation in creative processes to actively engage people with art and extend their audience, especially in public space.
