The HEUTE Bibliothek is a collection of books that have the word HEUTE (today) in their titles in order to emphasise their current relevance. The fact that this assertion outstrips itself in the end gives the work an absurd quality. ‘In TODAY there is tomorrow’ is how Eva Pichler and Gerhard Pichler – artists and currently also visual art curators at the Forum Stadtpark in Graz – describe their endeavour to gather these books, which represent both an aspiration to contemporaneity and a desire to be involved in shaping the future. ‘Good art always remains relevant to today and so also relevant to social problem areas of the future.’ As a usable work, the HEUTE Bibliothek is on loan – at Forum Stadtpark it is available from a shelf unit. New books are constantly being added to the collection, together with the duo’s own publication series ‘FORUM KUNST HEUTE’.

Building rubble and fragments of sculpture cover the floor in Martin Roth’s sound and space installation. A posthuman landscape of ruin – yet solitary pioneer plants are reclaiming the signs of humankind’s exploitation and destructive power.
Targets are constructs made from telescopic antennas and golf balls placed in various positions in the Kunsthaus – on the ceiling, walls and floors.

The title Haus im Grünen – house in green surroundings – is a reference to property market advertisements.

By now almost all of us are familiar with the self-service area at the post office – where you can pick up and drop off parcels 24 hours a day. But a ‘Paketbox’ parcel box can do even more than this.
