Dura­ti­on of the exhi­bi­ti­on: May 10 – 23 2013

Due to the over­whel­ming suc­cess of the Tri­via­les 1.0, 1.11 and 2.4 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!

qujOchÖ: “cor­pus delic­ti”
A mash up of press and poli­ce, sex and secu­ri­ty regu­la­tes the dai­ly scan­dal. And the scan­dal. Mur­der and mans­laugh­ter. Is blood­lust. Is smo­ke and. Mir­rors. The com­plex cohe­ren­ces of a media­ted socie­ty – which crea­tes a new desi­re for defor­mi­ty through exclu­si­on mecha­nisms – are the ele­men­tar com­pon­ents of the instal­la­ti­on “cor­pus delic­ti” by Ros­wi­tha Ange­rer and The­re­sa Lui­se Gindl­stras­ser. They both suc­ceed in a Tour de Fran­ce of Tri­via­li­ty: the good thril­ler.
