In September 2012 the "Truth is concrete", 24/7 marathon camp took place. With around 300 lectures, panels, tactic talks, performances, concerts, films, workshops and a parallel, self-curated, spontaneous Open marathon, "Truth is concrete" created a 170-hour performative space for thinking and networking.
"Truth is concrete" brought together art that not only represents and documents, but that engages in specific political and social situations – and activism that not only acts for the sake of acting but searches for intelligent, creative means of self-empowerment. Despite all the differences: This was the common denominator that was shared by the contributors, grant holders and by the many visitors from all over the world and the city of Graz.
We have put together some video material: a
whole range of tactic talks, which were the short introductions to
different artistic and activist practices by various contributors, many
lectures and some of the themed blocks and panels are online now
