Connecting Forum Stadtpark, Graz, Austria and Pekarna, Maribor, Slovenia

Connected 03 – Forum Stadtpark, Graz, Austria & Pekarna, Maribor, Slovenia

“Der 3. Raum // Tretji Prostor” (The 3rd Space)

A workshop that started with the question how to connect Forum Stadtpark in Graz and Pekarna in Maribor. The project started as a workshop by Cym, but developed into a big happening in the Stadtpark, including a demonstration ‘The city belongs to us’ with live music, djs, live actions and a fireshow.

As a result of the workshop we built a huge tunnel under the Forum Stadtpark that was a symbolic connection from Graz to Maribor. Somewhere in the middle of the tunnel under the Forum Stadtpark was the border. After coming out of the tunnel on the other side you would find yourself in an atmosphere similar to Pekarna in Maribor, with people around you speaking only Slovenian.

Among the participants during this project were son:DA. One of their ideas during this workshop was an installation with electric plugs and sockets. They made interesting sketches during the connected project which they developed later into many interesting projects in many different places.
