steirischer herbst

Dictionary of War

From ABC weapons to civilian population, from parachute invasion to facts on the ground, from potato to collateral damage, from homesickness to resistance: Dictionary of War is a collaborative platform for creating 100 concepts on the subject of war.

musikprotokoll from steirischer herbst

From the beginning, musikprotokoll has been inseparably linked to steirischer herbst, hitting and documenting the tone of the time year in, year out: between grand orchestra and open-source based computer network, this year again it is presenting the wide diversity of modern music, its sounds, its media and tools, but also its possibilities and intentions - solidarity, sensitivity and knowledge. What do we expect of art and music today? Leadership? Autonomy? A magic retreat or a sky falling on our heads, as in Georg Nussbaumer's opening work for steirischer herbst?

With a focus on installation-based and performance-based approaches in music, musikprotokoll runs like a red thread through the entire festival this year, confronting the audience, artists and itself with different forms of expression, media and topics.
