Due to the overwhelming success of the Triviales 1.0, 1.11 and 2.4 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!

qujOchÖ: “corpus delicti”
A mash up of press and police, sex and security regulates the daily scandal. And the scandal. Murder and manslaughter. Is bloodlust. Is smoke and. Mirrors. The complex coherences of a mediated society – which creates a new desire for deformity through exclusion mechanisms – are the elementar components of the installation “corpus delicti” by Roswitha Angerer and Theresa Luise Gindlstrasser. They both succeed in a Tour de France of Triviality: the good thriller.
