The Church as a Place of Transformation for Humanity: Andrä Kunst
The priest and later Bishop of Innsbruck, Hermann Glettler, who worked in Graz-St Andrä from 1999–2016, succeeded in transforming a historical church room in a district of Graz that the public regarded as difficult into a new place of sacrality with a radical concept of hospitality for contemporary art. For him, the church as the place of God is the collecting point for all questions concerning human existence: Breathtaking performances, installations, stained-glass and church façade designs are created for this purpose, which make possible the »creative connection from the inside as the sacred place and the outside as the profane place«. Thereby, Andrä Kunst became a groundbreaking project, as an apparently museum-like church space evades this musealization and can be experienced as relevant for today’s believers as well as for people who have withdrawn from the Church.
