Not too long ago, the new, oversized Nord-Autobahn was opened to traffic. The new road was intended to strengthen an important transit route. But the enormous stream of traffic has not yet arrived. The traffic flow on the Autobahn is moderate. However, the old Brünnerstraße is changing drastically. Villages along the once important road are mutating into mere sleeping villages, inns and restaurants are dying, crafts and trades, local small and medium enterprises come to a standstill.
This year’s workshop participants will work under the direction of Manu Luksch (A/GB) and they will populate mainly the urban area of Wolkersdorf with their art. The workshop aims at a critical dialogue with modern forms of mobility and their consequences as well as their concrete implementation in object art, performances or media art.
