SCHAURAUSCH
Art in 50 Shop Windows
11 May to 2 June 2007

Linz, Austria

The city center of Linz is transformed into a living art mile. Over 30 national and international artists exhibit Art in 50 Shop Windows. With their ideas and works in showcases, passages and on facades, they create spaces of experience enticing visitors to a Schaurausch – a seeing spree.

The thematic approach of the show leads right into the interesting debate about art, advertisment and consum: Whereas shop windows as advertising surfaces involve an act of purchase, window shop art foregrounds purely the act of seeing.

Unusual objects, photos and videos enrich the city and invite passers-by to linger, to be surprised and to stop and think. The visitor to the city becomes a flaneur setting out on a journey of artistic discovery
