Going Underground

Preli­mi­na­ry pro­ject in the con­text of Linz09

in coope­ra­ti­on with Uni­ver­si­ty of Art 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 trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry 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 art­ba­sed inter­ac­tive spa­ti­al instal­la­ti­on.
