Students of the Art University Linz test methods and strategies of resistance. Starting with the resistance of one’s own body to the invention of different tools for articulation in public space to performative actions in public space.

What the artistic works have in common is concrete action and thus creating new realities; making demands visible and self-empowered implementation of concerns, such as renaming the Nibelungen Bridge, “permission signs,” new newspaper formats and other methods of measuring time.
