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 fifth edi­ti­on of „Linz­ba­sed“ Domi­nik Leit­ner and Kris­ti­na Mau­rer are invi­ted for a talk.
