afo architekturforum oberösterreich (architecture forum upper austria) is a regional institution that aims to convey building culture. The association is situated in the city center of Linz, in the city’s former public soup kitchen designed by architect Curt Kühne. The premises are home to two exhibition spaces, workshops, a vaulted basement and offices. A 75 sqm studio flat equipped with a bed, kitchen, bath and toilet is located in the attic.
afo is awarding two residencies to architects and artists who address the topics of space, architecture and city. What they desire from the guests is fresh input in terms of content, creative and dedicated work and an expanded horizon for our program. This year’s call goes out for proposals relating to the neighborhood of the afo architekturforum oberösterreich and/or to the city center of Linz. The organizers have compiled a train of topics as food for thought: Space as a political element – re-interpretation of spatial conditions – freedom and regimentation – public space – history and future – closeness and distance – translating and communicating.
What they desire from the residents is fresh input in terms of content, creative and dedicated working and an expansion of our programme’s horizon. Possible outcomes are lectures, publications, exhibitions, happenings etc.
