Substitute herbst camp (Ersatzherbstlager)
A bureaucratic enactment
100% substitute

The “Ersatzherbstlager” or “substitute herbst camp” at steirischer herbst – referred to as EHL below – caters for an art demand that is incidental at the individual level but assessable as a whole thanks to a host of adequate substitute units. It includes all programme items announced by steirischer herbst in the genres of visual art, theatre, dance, performance, music, literature, film and theory.
This is the contract.
When steirischer herbst begins, the group ekw14,90, which was founded in Graz, is prepared for all unforeseen occurrences, cancellations, losses, damage, defects or hitches that might jeopardise the smooth running of the festival. For every artistic contribution on the programme there is a substitute event: associative transformations of the works originally scheduled.
Because it will only be used if a disaster was already unavoidable, the EHL will provide a regular insight into a repertoire that will hopefully not be needed, managing, cataloguing, updating and archiving its exhibits at the Joanneum throughout the festival period.
