The newly renovated Castle of Wolkersdorf – the domicile of FLUSS – will host a part of the „Exhibition of Lower Austria 2013“. The 2013 issue in Wolkersdorf will be entitled „Straßengeschichte(n) - Handelswege quer durch Europa“ [Street (hi)stories – routes of trade throughout Europe], and will have the historical, social and economical aspects of traffic, trade and commerce at its heart.
In a parallel exhibition FLUSS will present a contemporary contribution to these topics. The historical Amber Road, which led exactly through the area, will serve as point of departure and connecting motif.
The Photo Breakfast, a discussion event held annually in collaboration with EIKON in Vienna’s Museumsquartier will this year revolve around the traffic and trade problems which are in a photo-artistic discourse presented in the exhibition “The Amber Road Show”. After the discussion, a shuttle bus will take anyone who is interested to the exhibition at Wolkersdorf.
This year’s workshop participants will, under the direction of Johann Lurf (A) and Manu Luksch (A/GB), work on interventions, land art, installations and the corresponding documentation. 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 traffic and their consequences as well as their concrete implementation in object art, performances or media art. This dialogue will be conducted mainly in public space, which will be, in addition to the the Castle gallery, an important exhibition space, where some of the 2013 workshop results will be presented.
