LINZ
Linz, 3rd to 6th of November

‘The train will not derail before Linz, it briefly stops in Linz, I have never been in Linz, I always drove through it, Linz on the Danube …’ Ingeborg Bachmann wrote in her novel Malina. We, however are going to be stopping there this year, from the 3rd until the 6th of November 2016, our annual meeting will be held in this city, which has always been at the crossroads of old and new ways. Franzobel dedicated the symphonic etude Linz. An Obsession to it, while Achternbusch wrote the irate piece Linz. Linz may rhyme with province, but, as the writer and artist Herzmanovsky-Orlando knows, it offers much entertainment, something we will surely witness. In addition to our migrating exhibition in the space for contemporary art bb15 (www.bb15.at) we visited the Ars Electroica, the Lentos Museum, and the Dorf TV. Everywhere we had very inspiring meetings and discussions with different people and their activities.
