“Truth is concrete” is a 24-hour, 7-day marathon camp in the frame of this years steirischer herbst festival in Graz / Austria: around 150 artists, activists and theorists lecture, perform, play, produce, discuss and collect artistic strategies in politics and political strategies in art. The camp takes the possibility of concrete truth as a working hypothesis and look for direct action, for concrete change and knowledge. For an art that engages in specific political and social situations – and for an activism that searches for intelligent, creative means of self-empowerment.
