During our visit to Graz everything was perfect, the weather, the food, and the new friends we made all truly inspiring.

We happened to be there on the weekend of the Galerientage Graz and we were excited to visit the Rotor space.

Set a bit off from the city centre but in walking distance, the Rotor art association resides in a beautiful building, that had been abandoned for a long time and turned it into an amazing art space.

There we were able to meet up with the director Margarethe Makovec who invited us to sit with her in a wonderful blue room amidst the works of the artist Stefan Glettler.

Margarethe is quite the personality and full of bubbling energy that rubs off and inspires.

It was an honour to meet her and I think we shall be seeing more of each other in the future.

Rotor is an art association in Graz.

Their program concentrates on works that deal with present-day social, political and economic subjects.

The content of the works on view ignites discussions and communication induced by the depth of the thematic.

If you are there, take the time to understand what you are seeing. 

There is so much behind the work shown.

Talk to whoever is there from the Rotor team, that already is a joy in itself.

Just by entering their space, you know that this is an open place, a place to come together and exchange in a welcoming surrounding.

Making art happen is their motto.

They reach out beyond their premises, using open space to connect and bring art closer to everyone.

When we were there, an older lady, confused and looking for a street she could not find, came in. 

Margarethe and her colleague jumped up to help.

The air oozes friendliness and a strong neighbourly feeling, and you could sense the relief the older woman felt in a space that reached out to her so kindly.
