Interuni­ver­sitäre Ein­rich­tung Wis­senschaft und Kun­st
Bergstraße 12a, Salzburg ///

At the invi­ta­tion of “Interuni­ver­sitäre Ein­rich­tung Wis­senschaft und Kun­st” (Inter-Uni­ver­si­ty Insti­tu­tion for Sci­ence and Art), a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Paris Lodron Uni­ver­si­ty and the Mozar­teum Uni­ver­si­ty, qujOchÖ is com­ing to Salzburg with MYTH OF THEUTH. As part of the W&K forum “Artis­tic play spaces as par­tic­i­pa­to­ry places of learn­ing?”, after a round of games, the pos­si­bil­i­ties and lim­its of using games to pro­mote par­tic­i­pa­tion and impart knowl­edge will be dis­cussed in a pan­el discussion. 

MYTH OF THEUTH is a play­ful explo­ration of media the­o­ries from ancient his­to­ry to the present day. While walk­ing through ancient Athens, up to sev­en peo­ple gath­er dif­fer­ent media and get in touch with media-philo­soph­i­cal celebri­ties from the ancient world to the present. Vilém Flusser dri­ves aside the telem­at­ic soci­ety ad nau­se­am, Lau­ra Mul­vey takes a joy­ful look at our mem­o­ry and Mar­shall McLuhan final­ly gets his well-deserved mas­sage. Smart­phones, news­pa­pers, Lego bricks, sleep­ing masks, stamps, liqueur and oth­er media are used through twelve unique stations.
