Fol­lo­wing an invi­ta­ti­on by local artists qujOchÖ savo­r­ed 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.
