Dura­ti­on of the exhi­bi­ti­on: 9. – 15. Novem­ber 2011

Due to the over­whel­ming suc­cess of the Tri­via­le 1.0 as an exhi­bi­ti­on for­mat, which has been new estab­lished in Aus­tria, the cross-insti­tu­tio­nal nexus of bb15, IFEK – Insti­tu­te for Expan­ded Art, noma­den­etap­pe and qujOchÖ brings with the Tri­via­le 3.5 a fur­ther 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!

bb15: “”
Two num­bers, one rela­ti­on, a score? The direc­tion of move­ment from pas­sing objec­ts is reco­gni­zed, divi­ded into two cate­go­ries and dis­play­ed nume­ri­cal­ly. A bureau­cra­tic inter­ven­ti­on – left ver­sus right!

qujOchÖ: “point of no return”
Beau and body image ide­als make a run. It’s all about (obses­si­on of) body image, fashion and con­sump­ti­on. To illus­tra­te this end­less cir­cle shop­win­dow requi­si­tes will be expo­sed in their absur­di­ty by an improper acce­le­ra­ti­on and fro­zen in their cris­py stran­geness by slo­wing down to a standstill. The shop­win­dow is used as one out of many sta­ge ele­ments for a con­stant­ly new and rest­less­ly gene­ra­ted decal. For­mal recep­ti­on models and see­min­gly fami­li­ar body pro­cee­dings slow down each other in their own con­tex­tu­al round­about – shape your body till the end. (Gerald Moser, Cle­mens Bau­der)

noma­den­etap­pe: “Dis­co, a Toast Kil­ler?”
In the search for the ans­wer the next ques­ti­on is alrea­dy rea­dy as unavo­ida­ble stumb­ling block: to be toast, or not to be …? “Der Raum Dis­co mit all sei­nem Reper­toire an Sub­jek­ti­vi­tä­ten kann als per­fek­tes Stu­di­en­ob­jekt für ein Design gese­hen wer­den, das im Kon­sum den ein­zi­gen Welt­be­zug von Sub­jek­ten sieht.” (Mat­thi­as Dusi­ni, Dif­fe­renz­mo­de Dis­ko, sprin­ge­rin 4/97)

IFEK: “Kunst­samm­lung” (art collec­tion)
The “Grand Hotel zum Rothen Kreb­sen” pres­ents works from its art collec­tion which con­sists of arti­cles from the visu­al and app­lied arts from public and pri­va­te foun­da­ti­ons along to other means of artis­tic expres­si­on.
