Dura­ti­on of the exhi­bi­ti­on: April, 9 – May, 20 2012

Due to the over­whel­ming suc­cess of the Tri­via­les 1.0 and 1.11 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: “Art Now”
Video, 3 min., 2011 Phil­ipp Hanich, Andrea Lüth, Tho­mas Wein­ber­ger
It is not clear who sets the rhythm. The intent: bang on the kett­led­raum! Josph Beys plays the cym­bals. Small set, the sequence of crea­ti­on looks like this: 1. Rhythm (in the mind) – 2. move­ment (the pic­tu­re) – 3. filming – 4. sin­ging – 5. sound – 6. cut (ope­ning and final credits).

qujOchÖ: “Reb­rain the Street”
Tri­vi­al illu­si­ons meet con­scious­ness-expan­ding-hungry Lea­ry-fol­lo­wers. The cor­tex is hybri­di­zed with the free­way. The street belongs to the per­cepts. Don’t be foo­led. Reb­rain the street! Rec­laim the brain!

noma­den­etap­pe: “Etwas Ande­res” (some­thing dif­fe­rent)
is often not­hing that is clo­se to us.

IFEK: “acces­soires inva­si­ve”
Maren Hirt and Eva Teissl
fluffy phra­ses, banal scan­dals, pri­mi­ti­ve fee­lings & light fare
