Going Underground

Pre­lim­i­nary project in the con­text of Linz09 /// 
in coop­er­a­tion with Uni­ver­si­ty of Arts 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 trans­dis­ci­pli­nar 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 art-based inter­ac­tive spa­tial instal­la­tion.
