Art on the Rooftops of Linz

Art on the Rooftops of Linz
29. May – 31. October 2009

4020 Linz , Austria

A project for Linz 2009, European Capitel of Culture

The art exhibition OK I HÖHENRAUSCH (Thrill of the Heights) entices visitors up to and over the roofs of Linz. It shows art between the sky and the city, offering an opportunity for a unique experience of Linz. For 150 days it is possible to experience OK I HÖHENRAUSCH, then the heavens above Linz will be closed again. The ascent makes it possible to be “so close to the sky”, as rarely experienced before. Those who undertake this ascent are transformed into the figure of the rooftop wanderer, exploring Linz from an unfamiliar perspective.

The landscape of the course leads over bridges and stairs – from house to house, from roof to roof. The path changes with the constant up and down. Spaces are alternately crossed on the inside and on the outside. Visitors leave the surface of the familiar. In the end they land on the ground of reality, in the streets of the city.
