GEORG PINTERITSCH (AUT) ///
When international tenders, calls and applications are made or biographical information is translated into English, it is not uncommon to indicate the origin with the centre of one’s life and work – supplemented by the term „based“.
But what does it mean, this „Linzbased“?
qujOchÖ sets out to find it. At regular intervals, artists living and working in Linz are invited to a talk. Those will not only focus on the current work of the artists, their used methods, techniques and materials, or by whom they are influenced in their work, but also on the living and working environment that the city of Linz offers them.
What do you value most about Linz? What still keeps you in this city? How often have you thought of moving away forever? What influence does the Linz art and culture scene have on your own actions? What do you miss? Is there such a thing as a „Linz culture“? What does Linzbased mean to yourself? And in any case: What’s a Linz?
For the first edition of „Linzbased“ Julia Hinterberger and Georg Pinteritsch are invited for a talk.
