|AREA LINZ EAST|
Searching for the zero point of intention
|coop Peter Arlt|
Linz ? VOEST area
1992 ? 1995
Large parts of the city area of Linz are industrial zones, isolated from the city area by works security and fences. Behind the fences, however, there are not only blast furnaces and production plants, but also large areas of waste land. How can such places be occupied without owning them? How can the zero point of intention be found on the sight of such waste land?
We start to inspect the Area Linz East and carefully approach the place. The way leads over fences and illegally across the works area of the Voest Alpine along the river banks of the Traun to the Danube.
Over four years we cross the waste land with irregular frequency at different times of day and night and sometimes invite guests to accompany us.
