The Medienstammtisch* Linz invites interested Ars Electronica Festival
guests and visitors to come by during the festival. The MST includes
individuals – artists, activists, cultural workers and others – from
the Freie Szene (the independent art scene of Linz) and various
organizations and institutions, whose special interests include tools
& skills for independent artists and others working in cultural
contexts, electronic and social networks, possibilities for accessing
and using various types of media ...

We would be happy to talk about some of the things going on in Linz
and hear about similar and related interests and experiences
elsewhere, including:

- infrastructures (e.g. public hotspots) that can be meaningfully used
   for artistic and social-critical projects;

- working and production conditions needed for independent media art
   and how these can be secured;

- various (online and offline) communication structures and platforms
   that can promote cooperation and collaboration; how cooperation,
   collaboration, solidarity are even possible when everyone is
   competing (has to compete) for limited resources;

- the use of free software for independent media work; how tools and
   software need to be designed so that they can be used effectively.

When: Friday, September 1, starting at 10.00 p.m.
Where: extreme couching, Goethestraße 30 (map:

Those who can't make it then will also find us at the Unofficial
Time's Up "simply a party" on Saturday, September 2

(*A "Stammtisch" is a table at a pub or restaurant where regulars
gather to discuss certain shared interests, in our case "media".
Whether the discussions lead to actions or just more talk depends on
the people at the table.)
