Dura­ti­on of the exhi­bi­ti­on: June 24 – July 31 2011

Tri­via­le Linz is the star­ting signal for an exhi­bi­ti­on for­mat, which has been new estab­lished in Aus­tria. The cross-insti­tu­tio­nal nexus of bb15, IFEK – Insti­tu­te for Expan­ded Art, noma­den­etap­pe and qujOchÖ shows a rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ve sec­tion of the modern art sce­ne and ther­e­by streng­t­hens the posi­ti­on of Linz as the cent­re of Aus­tri­an con­tem­pora­ry art.

It’s all about big and flas­hy. The gen­tri­fi­ca­ti­on engi­ne and tou­rism fac­tor Tri­via­le regards its­elf as a con­scious anti­po­de, as a direct rival to major events like the docu­men­ta and the Veni­ce Bien­na­le, which – to be honest – are beco­m­ing increa­singly simi­lar illu­sio­na­ry giants. The clo­ser you get, the more the expec­ta­ti­on shrinks. But not the Tri­via­le, which does not play on the fore­front of the deba­te but tre­ats and dic­ta­tes it.

Come, watch and be ama­zed!
