Public space has always been an important place for steirischer herbst. The “herbst fragments“ project affords insights into the main projects. The Android and iPhone app not only gives users access to more than 100 interview excerpts, but also to original audio recordings related to projects in public space since the foundation of steirischer herbst in 1967. Walking around the city, it is now possible to listen to voices from the past – specific to your current location. Here the app tells of a woman walking down the road covered in a sticky mess of human hair and honey, there of an artist who opened his trousers and sent up rockets. Following its launch in 2015, the app has now been updated for this anniversary year.
