Zoo Linz, Windflachweg 1 ///
Join us for a very special event at Zoo Linz!
qujOchÖ explores the connections between animal, human and artificial intelligence in a six-hour foray. Artistic works on parrots and Alexa, the Codex Seraphinianus and the Kafkaesque “A Report to an Academy” meet contributions to animal psychology from 1912, read by Dominika Meindl and the three donkeys Jolly, Fejalema & Biggi. In addition, there will be a zoological tour with zoo director Sabina Moser, exploring the question of animal intelligence, and a lecture by Alice Auersperg, head of the Goffin Lab at the Messerli Research Institute at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna.
The grand finale will then take place on the petting zoo stage with two live concerts. Elvin Brandhi is “an improvising lyricist, producer and sound artist from Bridgend, Wales, who builds aberrant beats from field recordings, tape, vinyl, instrument and voice.” (SHAPE Platform) Recently she performed at festivals like LINZ FMR (2019), Sonic Acts Academy Amsterdam (2020), Donaufestival Krems (2021), Club Transmediale (2022), Supersonic Birmingham (2023) or Atonal Berlin (2023). Support comes from OGDL (Gundega Graudina, Ozan Tezvaran), two musicians around the Tangible Music Lab at Art University Linz.
Starting time: 4 pm!!!
Entrance fee: 18 Euros (incl. 10 Euros regular entry to the zoo)
