Graz (Austria)

Kunsthaus Graz

The Kunsthaus Graz is an exhibition centre that combines international contemporary art with regional and local themes and objectives. It stages exhibitions on current social issues, initiates the production of new artworks and realizes diverse educational projects. Further to this, it promotes discussion around art, design, architecture and exhibiting per se. In order to implement its visions, the Kunsthaus Graz works with a network of partner institutions—both locally and across the world. We are committed to ensuring that everyone can share in art and culture, as is reflected in both our artistic programme and our comprehensive range of art education experiences. Kunsthaus Graz GmbH is owned in equal parts by the City of Graz and the Universalmuseum Joanneum GmbH, which in turn is a company owned by the Province of Styria.

Audioguide & Multimedia App (Virtual Content)

Experience the Kunsthaus in a new way!

The Kunsthaus Graz is currently experiencing many changes - an opportunity to replace the old, very proven architecture audio guide with a new, updated one. The multimedia app Cultural Places from OROUNDO on iTunes and Google Play Store is now available free of charge for download to your smartphone (Android: 5.0, iOS: 9.3) or higher. The app is easy and intuitive to use. A dedicated server provides free WiFi on site and iBeacons provide local information throughout the building, such as the travelator, in text with images and sound.

Singer Michael Cadiz will accompany you on your tour. He tells nice stories about the architecture of the Friendly Alien in pleasant and very entertaining way. This alone makes it worth taking the tour!
