LINZ FMR is a biennial exhibition format for art in digital contexts and public spaces.
The first edition will take place at the end of March 2019 at the Donaulände in Linz, then at changing locations. The format’s core is an exhibition in public and open space with works by international and local artists who deal with art in digital contexts. A supporting program of walks, lectures, films, concerts and discussions will be set up to address new approaches, working methods and developments in this context.
On Thursday, 22 November 2018, starting at 6 p.m. at the Salzamt Linz, the prologue offers an introduction to the topics that will be presented in a concentrated form at LINZ FMR 19 at the end of March 2019. The prolog consists of a talk with Britta Peters (DE), a concert with Miri Kat (UK) and Julia del Río (ES) as well as screenings of the works “DECODING Katy Perry’s Dark Horse (THE WHOLE TRUTH)” by Karin Ferrari (IT/AT), “Fetish Finger” by Susanna Flock (AT), “Need Room” by Isabella Auer (AT) and “MY HOLY NACHO?” by Bernhard Garnicnig & Jamie Allen (AT/CA).
LINZ FMR 19 is curated and organised by the two Linz based art and cultural initiatives qujOchÖ and servus.at, the Atelierhaus Salzamt, the Department of Cultural Studies at the University of Art Linz and the STURM UND DRANG GALERIE.
LINZ FMR is supported by the City of Linz as UNESCO City of Media Arts, the State of Upper Austria and the Federal Chancellery for Art and Culture.
