“Wir möchten das OÖ Kulturquartier als einen außergewöhnlichen ästhetischen Erfahrungsraum etablieren”, sagt der künstlerische Leiter Martin Sturm. Bespielt werden nicht nur die klassische Ausstellungsräume, sondern auch Gänge, Stiegenhäuser, Dachböden und Teile des Höhenrausch-Daches. Der neu renovierte Ursulinensaal ist der dramaturgische Abschluss des Rundganges und wird damit auch dem Ausstellungspublikum vorgestellt.

The big “rausch” exhibitions mounted since 2009 are ambitious art outreach programs. “We have created this format with the aim of inspiring a greater appreciation for art in broad sections of the public,” says Dr. Josef Pühringer, Minister-President of Upper Austria and Cultural Advisor. Unusual exhibition locations and artworks that strongly appeal to the senses are ideal for this purpose.

the exhibition concept of ORBIS PICTUS PLAY culminates in the pivotal work The Heart in the Ursulinensaal. The instruments and objects here are all “analog” and function without any electronics, computer technology, recorded music or film clips. They have therefore somehow “fallen out of time and are for that very reason all the more present,” says Director Martin Sturm. Human energy is the only force that can breathe life into them, setting them in motion and making them produce sounds.

“I’m talking about something that’s so impossible, it can’t possibly be true. But it’s the only way the world is going to survive, this impossible thing. My job is to change 5 billions of people to something else. Totally impossible. But everything that’s possible has been done by man, I have to deal with the impossible. And when I deal with the impossible and am successful, it makes me feel good because I know I’m not bullshittin’.”

back to the times the walls of village farm houses here in Pannonia were “breathing air” through the bricks & stones because of their chalk cover – outside as inside. on the way through Stotzing, Burgenland I met last week one of the last house holders who traditionally whitewash their house in spring. & this activity seemed to spring over into the face of the old man at the moment he proudly told me about the benefits he gains from his work for his house, life & surroundings – & obviously for himself too!

more than 150 works representing all creative periods of Belgian painter René Magritte are recently exposed in the Albertina, Vienna. I am definitely no fan of so-called surrealist painting, but this show evoked an hype of realism in my eyes so my artistic view still seems inspired by that genius man…

Joueur Secret, 1927

Les Temps Menaçants (1929)

“c´est un morceau de fromage”

– la revers de la toile d´objét sous globe en verre

L´Eté et L’Avenir des statues, 1937

Les Valeurs personnelles, 1952
