Into the NOW! In accordance with the motto “Auf ins JETZT! // Towards the NOW!” the students developed an exhibition parcours in the city centre of Linz, which was shown on April 30th, 2021.
21 interventions, performances,posters, photographs and social sculptures show attempts to understand and reflect on the NOW, and to speculate its possible spaces.
The exhibition parcours was conceptualised as a city stroll for public space in times of Covid-19 and acts like a seismograph of the present, detecting desires and what’s missing in our present, while posing questions to the NOW: How does public space need to change in order to conjoin social participation and distance? Where are and where will communication places be in the city when physical proximity means danger?
