Where is the young art/scene in Austria now? Who are the most exciting representatives of the younger generation of artists? Are there new, interesting aesthetic approaches? Which traditions are being taken up again? Further developed? Evolving into something else?

The exhibition “Am Sprung” pursues these questions and presents 23 promising artists. None of them is older than 35, they come from all Federal Provinces or live as citizens of other countries in Austria.
What they all have in common is that they have been proposed for this exhibition by renowned art experts familiar with the Austrian art scene. Many expert views and no single opinion. Ready for takeoff!

The OK thus kicks off the Capital of Culture Year Linz09 by taking stock of the up-and-coming generation of artists and tying into the experimental orientation of the OK and the remit to promote young(regional) art at the same time.

Instead of an exhibition catalogue, an extensive representation of the project and the participating artists will be published in the art magazine SPIKE 6/08.
