Mythos Hofer

Thu, August 27th – Sun, August 30th 2009
Innsbruck, Berg Isel/Andreas-Hofer-street/Spar super market Leopoldstraße/Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum

Following an invitation by local artists qujOchÖ savoured a summer trip to Innsbruck. In symbolic exile the actual place was used as heterotopical point of insight. Focus of the project was an intense examination of and research into the mythological story of rebellion in connection with the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer. During the Andreas-Hofer-anniversary year qujOchÖ set out for the following interventions and reinterpretations in public space:

• Transformation of the Andreas Hofer monument at Berg Isel into a RAF memorial
• Renaming the Andreas-Hofer-street in Pippi-Langstrumpf-street
• Replacement of the entire range of Andreas Hofer brand (beer, cheese, wine, …) in a local supermarket by Abdullah-Öcalan-products
• Sound-based intervention in the official Andreas Hofer exhibition in the Ferdinandeum in Innsbruck

Beside these guerilla actions Doris Prlic feat. some other qujOchÖians, Guy Bored and Fuck the Rebels performed at the p.m.k.
