Welcome to an innovative digital journey that breaks free from traditional expressions and invites you not only to write poetry but to become poetry.

Explore the depths with the Language Machine, seeking answers: what holds greater relevance in contemporary linguistic art? Is it the text as the essence that forms the foundation of poetry, or is it the beauty of textual form, akin to a code that shapes the perfect poetic structure?

This exhibition as a part of the Wrong Biennale 2023/2024 is a dynamic voyage into how language seamlessly transforms into a canvas for creative expression. It's a tribute to language as a living, evolving entity where words and code interweave, giving birth to intricate narratives. Our curated collection offers a multitude of interpretations, immersing you in the most captivating forms of language.

Here, a convergence of media, including hybrid art, videos, animations, texts, and sounds, presents a vibrant tapestry of voices. Each piece bears testimony to the limitless creativity that blossoms when art and language engage in an enchanting dance.

Join us from Noveber 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024 on this artistic journey where international artists gather to celebrate the power of words and the elegance of code. While our contributors span the globe, a significant portion hails from Kunstuniversität Linz - a center of experimental art and design in the heart of Europe, enriching the conversation with a unique perspective.

Die Produktion des Charismas im Braustüberl Schwarzach

Die Produktion des Charismas im Braustüberl Schwarzach is a play for two. one voice is in quotation marks, one is not. The voices twitch wildly in different realities so that the shaking gives them a physicality. This physicality can be made fruitful - if it is well grated - and scattered on a freshly dug, still fallow field that will soon be filled with wonderful plants and fruits.

The voices cannot be captured, deceived, or fixed on an origin. the voices are in a connection and relationship to each other. Phew, big events leave behind big conflict situations. Bit by bit, the charisma is produced in the “Braustüberl Schwarzach” so that it just drips.
