copy & waste puts up a concept store in the middle of Graz. The aim is not only to spotlight the topic of gentrification, but also to allow time travel so as to shape the city of tomorrow.

The story should be familiar: in “Back to the Future Part II”, teenager Marty McFly travels into the future, ending up in the year 2015, where he not only comes across holograms, flying skateboards and his thirty-year-older self, even Hill Valley looks completely different as well. While the real 2015 is not quite as futuristic, cities have still changed dramatically. Some districts have been impoverished, others greatly enhanced as a result of gentrification – first come artists and studios, then students and feel-good cafés and finally high-earners and boutiques. A process that takes place in ever shorter periods of time.

copy & waste is putting up a concept store in the middle of Graz, too. At “Cupcakes & Time Travel” you can wine and dine during the day in a “Back to the Future” setting. When it gets dark, the store also offers time travel – like McFly, visitors can nip off into the past or into the future, as they choose: to prevent certain things from happening – or to make them happen. What do we have to change in the past or bring back to the present from the future to stop things from being the way they are? How would you change the district that is home to the concept store? What kind of city do we want anyway? And what will never change, no matter what we do?
