Manifest vs. Propaganda. Dissemination of Ideas in Contemporary Society

Superstudio, one of the most radical and visionary architecture collectives of the 1960s and 1970s, established its reputation through the publishing of their speculative and politicized visions and ideas in magazines and through exhibitions. In Graz, Superstudio is renowned for their acclaimed contribution to the three-nation biennial Trigon ‘69 entitled Architecture and Freedom (1969) and the international travelling exhibition Fragments From a Personal Museum (1973). These two exhibitions mark the beginning and the end of Superstudio’s best known and respected work.

In this context, five emerging artists from the Future Architecture Platform will be invited to HDA Graz for a three-day workshop in an archive-installation featuring the work of Superstudio to discuss and produce current media strategies aimed at disseminating political ideas as informed by the radical Italian avant-garde group. The results of the workshop will be organised and shown in the form of an exhibition at the HDA.

Exhibition in cooperation with MAXXI / Rome.
