An event organized by Kunst oder Unfall, Grazer Autorinnen Autoren Versammlung (GAV) & rhiz Vienna.
For a number of years Kunst oder Unfall have been holding the Salon Zwischenstation Zukunft at irregular intervals and at various locations, as a communication platform by and for artists and representatives of various other areas (science, criticism, etc.). Without having to take genres or sectors and usual forms of events into account, they have invited artists and other experts for presentation and exchange.
Judith Nika Pfeifer
Author, communication and linguist, performance and language artist, writes lyrics and poetry, scenic texts and prose, realizes transmedia art projects.
Ulrich Troyer’s artistic principle is determined by a crossover and the interaction of architecture, music and visual arts. The acoustic space and the reverberation of sound events form a central theme in Troyer’s work. Troyer’s devotion to dub production methods provides the perfect playground for his sonic experiments. His preoccupation with sound system music (bass, dub, techno and their abstractions) led to the SONGS FOR WILLIAM trilogy. The project brings together music, animated ink drawings for live performance, and a graphic novel that tells the story of a guitar effects device called WILLIAM.
