In an image incorporating the sights of the city and based on an amateurish status, a hotdog is shown in a Pop Art outfit, thus brutally destroying the apparent idyll. In contrast to, say, a perfume advertisement, it seems intrusive and inhomogenous. The hotdog derives from a pictorial grammar that visualizes the theory of the "generic city“ – the generalization of urban spaces as an iconografic tautology – and thus can take its place in any imaginable view and in (almost) any geographic city territory as a significant prop. With this postcard motive, Graz proves itself to be a typical, international city.
