The “2020 Year of Culture” in Graz was largely postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why our Castle Mountain railway is currently out and about not in its usual red design but in the artistically designed black-and-white design.
Within the framework of the installation “Space*Object*Inbetween”, the Castle Mountain railway was namely transformed under the leadership of the two Graz artists “studio ASYNCHROME” into a utopian zone.
The preparations for the artists’ project took a year in total; within a week, drawings by the two artists were affixed to the glass fronts of the railway carriages with the aid of a technically innovative special film and these drawings made it possible to see and experience the structures, networks and interrelationships. The view of the city, i.e. the analogue panorama, is thus overlaid by a digital panorama that makes it possible to discover new perspectives and areas of possibility and to become part of the drawings yourself.
The carriages of the Castle Mountain railway run regularly every 15 minutes (on each full quarter hour); if necessary also at shorter intervals. Thanks to the carriages equipped with a glass roof, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view over the city of Graz during the journey.
