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.

Echoes of Experience

Foreignness becomes a canvas, where stereotypes unravel, and the migrant narrative finds its voice.
This innovative project unfolds as a digital open letter, drawing inspiration from the Travelogues and Post-cards archive AKON within the Austrian National Library's digital collection. Motivated by a deep sentimental connection to the archive and personal experiences as a migrant, Rodriguez Morales explores the nuances of foreignness, exoticism, and the stereotypes associated with arriving in a new territory.


A metafictional archive unfolds, stitching together the threads of foreignness and creating a space for empathy.
At its core, the project is a reconfiguration of collected texts, giving rise to a new metafictional archive. This archive weaves a narrative that intimately connects with the emotional landscape of adapting to unfamiliar surroundings. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to navigate this narration without a prescribed order, immersing themselves in the exercise of empathy and confronting the complexities of the foreign experience.

In the heart of the migrant experience, 'Echoes of Experience' beckons, where stereotypes are shattered, and a digital embrace welcomes all to the shared journey.
"Echoes of Experience" stands as a testament to the power of digital storytelling in bridging personal narratives with archival treasures, creating an evocative space for reflection on the shared aspects of the migrant experience.
