Due to the overwhelming success of the Triviales 1.0 and 1.11 as an exhibition format, which has been new established in Austria, the cross-institutional nexus of bb15, IFEK – Institute for Expanded Art, nomadenetappe and qujOchÖ brings with the Triviale 3.5 a further representative section of the modern art scene and thereby strengthens the position of Linz as the centre of Austrian contemporary art.

It’s all about big and flashy. The gentrification engine and tourism factor Triviale regards itself as a conscious antipode, as a direct rival to major events like the documenta and the Venice Biennale, which – to be honest – are becoming increasingly similar illusionary giants. The closer you get, the more the expectation shrinks. But not the Triviale, which does not play on the forefront of the debate but treats and dictates it.

Come, watch and be amazed!

bb15: “Art Now”
Video, 3 min., 2011 Philipp Hanich, Andrea Lüth, Thomas Weinberger
It is not clear who sets the rhythm. The intent: bang on the kettledraum! Josph Beys plays the cymbals. Small set, the sequence of creation looks like this: 1. Rhythm (in the mind) – 2. movement (the picture) – 3. filming – 4. singing – 5. sound – 6. cut (opening and final credits).

qujOchÖ: “Rebrain the Street”
Trivial illusions meet consciousness-expanding-hungry Leary-followers. The cortex is hybridized with the freeway. The street belongs to the percepts. Don’t be fooled. Rebrain the street! Reclaim the brain!

nomadenetappe: “Etwas Anderes” (something different)
is often nothing that is close to us.

IFEK: “accessoires invasive”
Maren Hirt and Eva Teissl
fluffy phrases, banal scandals, primitive feelings & light fare
