What we do:
“The basis [for effects of KunstRaum’s projects] is that the reception as well as the production of art always requires confrontation with oneself. It means becoming active, mastering unusual tasks and exploring boundaries.”
The KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd is a production, (art) communication and exhibition space for contemporary art, a contractor for designs and artistic creations, an initiator of campaigns and projects in public space and a place for encounters and discussions about artistic processes and the creation of art.
The KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd is an offer of pro mente OÖ and an essential part of the Linz art and cultural landscape, located at Goethestrasse 30, Linz.
Connecting people, art and health, opening up perspectives, enabling creativity, experiencing art and integrating the discussions into one’s own life requires continuity, staying power, experience, attractive offers and relationship work. This is what KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd stands for.
It is characteristic that each project is realised in cooperation with people with psychosocial support needs, artists, people with an interest in creative/artistic activities and all city residents along methods and themes developed for this purpose. The KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd is open to all interested parties and invites them to become part of it.
In this way, work is done on an expanded concept of art, art is produced, publicity is created in order to sensitise people to the individual and social connection between mental health and art and to bring about change.
The five pillars of KunstRaum’s work are:
- presentations (exhibitions, projects, documentations)
- City of Respect
- Artistic designs (“Kunst am Bau”, conference contributions, designs) and video productions
- offers for art communication
