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 sec­ond edi­tion of „Linzbased“ Anna Firak and Clemens Stöt­tinger are invit­ed for a talk.
