The annual themes and claims were created in the respective years. However, the contents of these flow into the STWST projects beyond these years.

MMXIX – 40 Jahre STWST – STAY UNFINISHED / 2019


Annual Theme 2019: Founded in 1979, Stadtwerkstatt will be in 2019 - 40 years. STWST's annual claim for 2019 is “Stay Unfinished”. It's about looking at the art of the past and the projects of today. It's about history and the present, it's about process, transformation, becoming - it's about looking ahead. We remain unfinished. Against the finished ones.


PROSECCO CITY OF MEDIA ARTS / 2018

Question 2018: Is drinking Prosecco already Media Art? In 2018, while Official Linz was celebrating the Unesco City of Media Arts, Stadtwerkstatt proclaimed the PROSECCO CITY OF MEDIA ARTS. A campaign on event culture and the inflationary use of the term Media Art. In 2018 … We were so Prosecco!

No Architects / since 2009

Theme since 2009: No Architects refers to the spontaneous, the living, the wild. No Architects is the recurring motto of Stadtwerkstatt, because here is the potential of creativity, for new spaces and projects between art, nature, information and social issues. It is about planning and wild growth, about freedom in ideas and about improvisation.
