OÖ Kulturquartier and Offenes Kulturhaus (OK) Linz
The „OÖ Kulturquartier“ combines the „Landeskulturzentrum Ursulinenhof“ and the „OK – Offenes Kulturhaus“. This complex of buildings comprises the art collection of Upper Austria, the Moviemento arthouse cinema and diverse gastronomy. The „Kulturquartier“ is, because of its exhibitions and events a popular meeting point for guests and residents of Linz.
The OK provides space for contemporary art trends in Linz. Regional and International Art- and Festivals, like the Crossing Europe Filmfestival choose the OK as their venue. The peculiarity of the OK lies in the longstanding experience in the sector of art production with a strong emphasis on artistic work.
The OK invites young artists to use the provided rooms to give vent to their creativity and realize their ideas. The OK provides infrastructure like a music- or video-studio, ateliers and a hall for events. Visitors of the OK can expect tensing group- and solo-projects, symposiums and programs for communication of art and music. Multimedia-projects and art exhibitions that capture social aspects, let art-lovers feel the pulse of the time.
Höhenrausch 2021 - Just like Paradise
The new Höhenrausch is all about paradise. The popular format impresses with works by over 30 national and international artists and a varied exhibition parkour that leads over the roofs of the city.
On their way through the exhibition, visitors discovered artificial paradises: Fragrant honeycombs and a reflective cherry orchard beckon above the rooftops of Linz. Globes glow in the church attic and a figure talks to the angels. But it is also revealing their dark side.
The exhibition leads through the Kulturquartier and the renovated Ursulinenkirche up to the roof of the 60m high wooden tower, which offers a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding nature.
