Höhenrausch in Linz

Show Sidebar

This week, I was in Linz, the capital of upper Austria and the third largest city in Austria after Vienna and Graz.

Linz has a very nice historic center, lots of shops and awesome restaurants. In recent time, their advertisement video caused some discussions within Austria. Many cultural events take place in Linz. The most famous is Ars Electronica. In 2009, Linz was European Capital of Culture just like Graz was in 2003.

One of the things they did in 2009 was Höhenrausch which might translates with "high-altitude euphoria". I visited Höhenrausch this week because it will be discontinued afterwards.

Here are some photographs from Höhenrausch 2021 "Wie im Paradies" (just like in paradise).

"Keine Sorgen Turm" (no sorrows tower).

Höhenrausch consists of a series of art pieces. Video installations, pictures, photographs, hardware installations, and interactive games.

"Green Parking": We Need to Overcome Cars.

Furthermore, there are wooden paths high above the ground, on the top of the buildings and inside the roof of an old church.

"Cloud Parking in Linz".
"The Flying Ship".
"Opferstock" (offertory box).
"Return".
"Die Königinnen zogen Schwärme fort" (the queens drew flocks away).

You can visit Höhenrausch until 2021-10-17.
