The Wild State: networked

The many events of the early months of 2020 have turned our world upside down. The Covid19-pandemic has profoundly changed the way we live, work and move. Many have and still experience this time as one marked by uncertainty and precarity. On the other hand, a world in flux also means the possibility of questioning habits, and the chance for new beginnings.

The exhibition “The Wild State: networked” seeks to leave the state of uncertainty behind us by bringing some of the most recent and interesting contributions to the Hauptplatz in Linz. We are delighted to present works by Master and PhD-students, touching on topics related to the truly “Wild State” we are currently in, and the natural processes related to it.
