About Ducks, Knights And Finely Crafted Rocketships,
And Sundry Other Delicacies

Alright, here's the thing I was teasing, last week.

After having recklessly shanghaied some of the most beautiful Romanticism paintings (especially the ones by Carl Spitzweg, Caspar David Friedrich and Albert Bierstadt) in the past years, the ducks are now going for the big party. In spring 2021 they'll highjack and mask a whole historic site, for real. No mockups, no photomontage. Real real.

A giant larger-than-billboard-size imagery exhibit high above the rooftops of the City of Graz, Austria, at the iconic Kasematten Theatre, located on Castle-Hill, Schloßberg. Right in the middle of the city's historic centre.



Sincere thanks to the show's executive producers Bernhard Rinner and Michael Tassis and the exhibit's production head Daniel Polzer for the striking support and hard work. More details about the show and its contents will follow in February.

On this historic cityscape here, portraying Graz ca. 1830, the yellow flag roughly marks today's actual location of the show's venue. Additionally, please find attached two photos, one of Castle-Hill (photo by Gerhard Eder) and the other one shows the Kasematten's east entrance.
