Designmonat Graz 2018

05 May - 03 Jun 2018

Celebrating: 10 x Designmonat Graz

2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 – for the 10th time in a row, Designmonat Graz was transforming the city into an urban design zone. For 4 weeks and with a dense design program. All started on May 4th with the opening event and the Designers’ night with DJ DSL.

How much Tolerance does design need?

Design triggers emotions which are located between aversion and approval, enthusiasm and disappointment, outrage and indifference. Yet, who is the one to say what is beautiful? Who says what works for whom and why? And who judges good taste – and why? Additionally, Design is a question of tolerance; therefore, Designmonat Graz focuses on the topic of tolerance. It challenges and demands tolerance. And it also challenges you: with an interesting program, with an unusual graphic design and with a lot of design within 4 weeks!


Designmonat Graz 2018 and the exhibition at Joanneumsviertel Graz were opened by Barbara Eibinger-Miedl, Minister for Economy, Tourism, Europe, Science and Research, and the Mayor of Graz Siegfried Nagl.
