Subversiv Messe / Subversive Fair



(14.-17.05. 2009, Hafenhalle09, Linz)

COUNTER CULTURE AND RESISTANCE TECHNOLOGY FAIR
A project by Social Impact within the frame of Linz 2009 European Capital of Culture.

As the first trade fair for counter culture and resistance technology the Subversive Fair presents recent projects/actions/works ...and poses questions: which inventions make resistance easier? Which ideas undermine the system? Where are revolutionary forces lurking? What can we do to successfully dissolve hegemonies?

We´ve been there -
captured impressions, inspiration and information;
Made buttons and interviews;
Collected statements and stickers.

HIDE - surveillance free city tours



HIDE - surveillance free city tours
www.ausblenden.net

Have you ever tried to walk through your city without beeing captured by a surveillance camera?
On sunday, 10th of May 2009, we accompanied the first "hidden" guided tour through the centre of Linz.

A group of 11 people - equipped with white uniforms and reflective shields (to protect themselves against camera surveillance) was given a crash course in the subject of surveillance and monitoring of public space.

The 2 guides, Ulrike Hager and Christian Korherr - dressed in red uniforms - provided them with information, self-protective skills and confronted them (and everybody who saw them move through the streets) with an ongoing topic that effects every single one of us.

An intervention that combines a double dose of irritation with a dash of humour.

Parade - music on the move



Having troubles with the flash player? Download MP3

Parade is an artistic sound experiment and at the same time exciting entertainment - 8 music-crews from around the world made their way through Solar City, Linz to Weikerlsee. It was one big sound-collage – the encounters of different soundworlds and resonances in public spaces provide for a very special listening experience.

The audience found itself in new roles; taken by surprise, encircled, involved.

Parade opens the ears and widens the horizons of the city.

Kulturlotsinnen



Twelve women with a migrant background will take up their posts in Linz Mitte near Wiener Stra├če to invite locals as well as tourists on guided tours of Linz neighbourhoods.

It was a very nice and interesting tour with the two charming ladies Azar from Persia & Aldona from Poland. Actually the two hours passed far too quickly.
