“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.

scene of action: Steyr, Austria. seen from the churchtower

Bernadette Huber´s artproject Die Macht des Tratsches – The power of gossp recently brought together with Christina Hinterleitner (chrisenberatung) some confusion to the inhabitants: „Die Macht des Tratsches. Ein Stresstest für Steyrdorf – The power of gossip. A stresstest for the village of Steyr“ was program. Here the website of the announcement of the opening of the faked brothel in Steyr´s red-light district: The return of desire

detailed reports about in German: der standard


Steyr, a small Upper Austrian city,  seems perfect as adaption for a stage & has even tradition in Punch & Judy show on such a traditional & serious stage as Steyrer-Kripperl:

cousin Franz Divinzenz gave the watchman in a short performance for his relatives & lead after the show behind the scenes

inside a  brothel? – oh no!:

historical Nadettes?

oh no! – serious historical citizens!



oh no! – participants of the Nativity play Steyrer-Kripperl

after the show walking aside the red-light district through the main street last month I felt the need to raise my  eyes:  signs / aushaengeschilder in the sky:

cutting red onions to prepare some Italian sugo for lunch today noon & destroying the concentric circles of the bulbs with my knife I recognized the necessarity to do some adds into the dark picture I had scetched  in acrylic colours some days before –  imaginating a terrific scene in the Gulf of Mexico

the onions jumped virtually (& visually) into the water:

to give rise to a malstrom in my painting bucket

Andreas Roseneder   the red bulb globe shell acrylics on canvas 2010

done that I put my knife – my beloved leatherman-super-tool – into my pocket & drove out to the next village: Mr. Leatherman himself signed men´s tools ( pardon, I did not catch sight of a woman but the saleswomen ) there on the occasion of the opening of a new Leatherman-store in Hof / Leithagebirge, Lower Austria. Mr. Tim Leatherman opened my tool & noticed after a short glimpse through his spectacles: ” It was born in August 1995″.  – “Oh, a lion, best bite”, I thought.

Mr. Timothy S. Leatherman signating one of “his” tools – oh no!,  – it´s “mine”!

why the hell I had the feeling I have ever missed a meeting with  Mr. Timothy F. Leary ?
