schnitt­punkt exhi­bi­ti­on theo­ry & prac­tice orga­ni­zed a trip to Linz on 29th to 31st of Octo­ber 2004.

It begins in Linz!” (“In Linz beginnt’s!”) This slo­gan inven­ted in the late 70’s slo­gan marks a chan­ge in the image of the Upper Aus­tri­an capi­tal. The city was pre­vious­ly known for the steel indus­try loca­ted the­re, the “LD” (Linz / Dona­witz) pro­cess, the image chan­ged into a cul­tu­re and tou­rism town by initia­ting cul­tu­re fes­ti­vals such as Ars Elec­tro­ni­ca. The ope­ning of the Kunst­mu­se­um Lent­os 2003 is the most recent signal. Like it was cal­led in Graz 2003 “Graz can do anything” (“Graz darf alles”), Linz aims to beco­me European Capi­tal of Cul­tu­re tog­e­ther with the Lit­hua­ni­an city of Vil­ni­us in 2009.

schnitt­punkt plans to ana­ly­ze the­se chan­ges tog­e­ther with respon­si­ble actors from the estab­lished off-sce­ne sec­tion of the cul­tu­ral life of the city, to ques­ti­on and dis­cuss stra­te­gies of images and visi­ons of the future. What hap­pen­ed in recent deca­des and why in the cul­tu­ral sec­tor? What makes the city look like today? What is the focus of Linz for the future?
