STWST48x3 – 48 Hours MIND LESS

Under the slogan MIND LESS, STWST48x3, the third edition of STWST48, offers a 48-hour showcase-art-extravanganza of the expanding kind. Mindless information, open states of mind, an infolab in opposite to new media, quasi-coordinates of extended contexts, funky fungis, digital physics and a Meltdown Totale: STWST48x3 MIND LESS is addressing new art contexts that have been developed in and around the Stadtwerkstatt Linz in recent years. Watch out: MIND LESS Stadtwerkstatt is also in 2017 under the directive of New Art Contexts and autonomous structures.


Mycelium Network Society, a brand new network initiative situatedin a post-internet mudland, diverts the pursuit of magic mushroom, from a state of hyper-hallucination to collective fungal consciousness. MNC investigates the fungi culture, its network capacity to communicate and process information. MNC shows works from Artists of der Summer-Residencies on survey vessel Eleonore.
