Dura­tion of the exhi­bi­tion: May 10 — 23 2013

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.
