Die Fabrikanten from Linz, Austria, speak
of special places and motivations that have led to projects such as
"Die Jury", "Blind Spot", "Botschaft Linz",
"Trivial Europe", or the "Tischtransaktion".
Die Fabrikanten is a cultural enterprise dealing with strategic communication
design in the case of commissioned projects and with communication culture
in the frame of art projects.
The theoretical approaches Die Fabrikanten rely on have their origins
in art, in science but also in the economy. By creating new links between
these fields the team comes up with unusual perspectives.
Time and time again Die Fabrikanten deal with the phenomena and the rules
of human communication. In the Tischtransaktion, for example, where kitchen
tables from private households are swapped. After the tables their owners
too, and e.g. festival visitors, go on a journey and begin to pay visit
to one another. This is communication on a very basic level.
