The Design: Tech.Tex department of the Art University Linz invites you to the exhibition of student ceramic objects on social, environmental, and intercultural aspects of human utilization of toilets.
As part of the course Der Lokus by Josseline Engeler, the Department Design: Tech.Tex students dealt in depth with the sanitary theme. They explored its complexity theoretically and scientifically but also developed their own ceramic design objects artistically and practically.
A visit to the factory of a sanitary ceramics manufacturer and the exhibition „Klo & So“ in the Museum of Historical Sanitary Objects in Gmunden, as well as various media inputs from philosophers, scientists, and ecologists, in combination with presentations developed independently on key topics such as „The Toilet in the Film“, „The Toilet in Japan“ or „World Toilet Day“ have led to the creation of an exhibition with diverse content and – in times of resource scarcity and gender awareness – absolutely topical.
With the „hosted by“ series, bb15 offers Linz-based art students the opportunity to show their semester or final projects to the public.
Exhibition Opening: November 17th 2022, 7 pm
Opening Hours: November 18th – 25th, 3–6pm, Sa/Su closed
The sound installation Composition #7 focuses on a special and delicate performance practice that made use of Anton Bruckner‘s works in the form of „Dunkelkonzerte“ during the Nazi era. The Wiener Konzerthaus was completely darkened and listening to Bruckner was advertised as a pseudo-religious, transcendental experience in the context of the National Socialist blood and soil ideology.
Composition #7 points to this acousmatic concert practice to present Bruckner‘s Seventh Symphony in the form of a special sound/space setting that refers to LaMonte Young‘s drone music happenings. This new interpretation presents Bruckner‘s music in complete contradiction to the „Dunkelkonzerte“ of the 1940s.
