Going Underground

Preliminary project in the context of Linz09

in cooperation with University of Art Linz

The city of Linz owns a vast, widely ramified, yet insufficiently studied system of tunnels, bunkers and stollen. The project GOING UNDERGROUND deals with the underground space of Linz in a transdisciplinary way. It is intended to examine this space using art based research methods within a team of historians, artists and social scientists.

The aim of GOING UNDERGROUND is not to draw a simple plan or a copy based on existing plans but a map with manifold dimensions and plateaus on different layers like picture, sound, time, space and text. Planned are a publication, a DVD, a website and an artbased interactive spatial installation.

Concept: Andre Zogholy
