The Friendly Alien

The friendly alien

“The friendly alien” was the name given to the art exhibition building of Graz, the Kunsthaus, soon after it was opened in 2003. It was one of the main projects for the Cultural Captial year.

Island in the stream

Murinsel - the island in the river Mur - Graz, Austria

One of the remaining art installations of the year 2003 – Graz was cultural capital of Europe – is the island in the Mur.

It’s designed by Vita Acconi and houses a cafe – and it’s one of the most photographed attractions of Graz.

Streets of Bergen

Bergen was the first city of Norway we set foot in. The thing that amazed me was the amount of art displayed on the streets – and not only historic monuments!
