Apart from new formats and well-established highlights, in the course of Design Month Graz from May 10 to June 9 2019, you can once again look forward to the design festival assembly and international flair, due to the cooperation with Istanbul, Mexico City and other “Creative Cities” of the UNESCO network.
In the last year, Design Month Graz with 100,000 visitors at 121 events, workshops and exhibitions within 30 days broke all previous records.
This year’s event will also provide new insights into the local creative industries, international contributions and many opportunities for exchange and networking.
Contributions of the Cities of Design
Experience the whole essence of design in Graz – in 31 days, like when the river Mur turns into the Bosporus as Istanbul dominates the Murinsel for three days in terms of design activities.
The diverse program completes the exhibition “Istanbul City of Design Collection” at designforum Steiermark.
The poster exhibition “To Death with a smile”, organized and curated by MUMEDI – Museum of Mexican Design from Mexico City, shows international works on the subject of death from a satiric point of view.
“World Wide Things” at Joanneumsviertel Graz, is the second exhibition of Design
Month Graz highlighting selected design from the UNESCO Cities of Design.
1 month, more than 30 shops and 15 Seconds
For the sixth time, Graz-based shops open their doors for “Design in the City” and for the period of one month turn their retail spaces into showrooms, hotspots and meeting places for designers and interested guests.
In addition, the design festival assembly is back and invites you to delve into the world of fashion design in May.
The program features another highlight, namely the “Fifteen Seconds Festival”, which has become an interdisciplinary and international business festival within a few years.
Program focus: Women & Design
Design is a story full of misunderstandings and clichés, especially when it comes to the issue of gender. Hence, in 2019, Design Month Graz focuses on the topic of “Women & Design”.
