Miss Magnetiq. Episode 2: Miss Mıknatıs = Miss Magneetti

Sat, Sep­tem­ber 27 2014 /// 
Linz ///

Linz is diverse. Peo­ple with near­ly 150 dif­fer­ent nations are liv­ing here, sig­nif­i­cant­ly more than 100 lan­guages are spoken.

MISS MAGNETIQ uses the con­nect­ing pow­ers of mag­net­ism for an inter­cul­tur­al inter­ven­tion. The mag­net­ic force of attract­ing unlike­ly mag­net­ic poles are used to con­nect ori­gins of lan­guage. In a poster series MISS MAGNETIQ is show­ing, how s_he can be the link­ing ele­ment between two dif­fer­ent languages.

And to make up some of the dam­age which has already been done by MISS MAGNETIQ in Linz (take a look at the first part of the first episode under http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddZGIBdcMZ8), s_he will be per­form­ing live at the “Day of Lan­guages” on Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 27th on the Land­straße in Linz. While her_his com­pan­ions Nick­el, Kobalt and Man­gan will mix spe­cial cock­tails like the Crispy Robin or the red Lakritz and try to learn the mag­net­ic lan­guage to the passers-by, MISS MAGNETIQ will appear for an auto­graph session.
