investigation in public space
Edwin is interested in the phenomenon ‘Landflucht’. That’s what it’s called when young people exchange the countryside for the big city. The Lungau region has a rich cultural past but how about its future? Send him your ideas on the development of this beautiful region! With site specific ‘conversation pieces’ he wants to offer the opportunity to imagine and debate the future.
Fri 26 May – Sun 04 June: open to the public at any time
Wed 31 May | 12pm – 2pm “Lungau, when does the last train to Salzburg leave?” Table talk with soups from Suppengau | Parking: Tafernwirt, Zederhaus*
*My artistic research shows a connection between rural exodus and poor public transportation. Websites like the one of Salzburger Land outline a different reality: “Even Lungau, Salzburg’s southernmost region, can be reached quickly and comfortably by public transportation.”(1) You are cordially invited to the table talk to discuss this.
Edwin is a visual artist from the Netherlands. He often collaborates with his wife Hristina Tasheva, who is also an artist. His socially engaged artistic practice uses public space as an active arena for social inquiry. His focus is on contextual art projects, often created in multidisciplinary alliances. Edwin believes that art can be a window into the future.
