ABOUT STWST48 

STWST48 is a Stadtwerkstatt project
Stadtwerkstatt, Kirchengasse 4, A-4040 Linz

Convert yourself into E-waste, ferment yourself, chase honeybees for weather report, launch fungi to outerspace, send your mobile on a slow boat to China, set your electric sheep free range, grow your android plants, tune in to ghostradio, stream in the orchestra, piss off to compute, eat your data raw, read your pulse loud, make your own bed, make love to your tattoo, hand over your hangover, take a dip in the Danube, check into the underwater eel hotel, admits yourself to a world without compromise, a world in which dreams greet reality and technology is treated with great caution.

In 2015, Stadtwerkstatt, the nerve central of Linz' free/open culture takes up “the nature of information” as matters of inquiry and launches information LAB to house its many ongoing information research projects. For Stadtwerkstatt who always presents a reference to the established system, an information laboratory is a challenge of the presence. While the world of natural sciences updates and releases information through logical conclusions, information LAB retrieves seemingly meaningless information data without seeking conclusive arguments. It is about the interplay between reality and information, about the observation of observation, taking in contingency randomness in the process of encoding unique information, looking deeper into concepts of decision-making and conclusion.

From STWST cultural space to Am Winterhafen where Messschiff Eleonore is anchored, along the Danube, cross the continents, STWST48 - crashing the information in 48 hours brings together events/non-events, information/non-information, hack/fab labs, reality/dreams, unfiltered/raw/random/mined/cooked/processed infodata. The 48 hour programs are organized under the four headlines – infoLAB, infoDETOX, infoCRACH and Nightline’s CRASH THE FUTURE.

Based in Linz, Stadtwerkstatt is an innovative cultural space founded in 1979 by a group of socially engaged art students. In advocating open source software and free spaces, they add a political dimension in confronting contemporary issues across borders,  creating and presenting interdisciplinary projects in public space, radio and the Net. www.stwst.at
