we all have motives



Nine artists from Linz (students of experimental visual design at the Kunstuniversität Linz) and four artists from Vienna (Institute for Art and Design at Vienna University of Technology/architectecture department) developed site-specific works for the Unterstinkenbrunn cellars. After a number of visits of varying length concepts were drawn up for all of the works: they addressed the shift in image and economic situation — in Unterstinkenbrunn, which is known for its cellars, there has been a recent shift away from wine in favour of onions, which are far easier to cultivate and harvest — and took anecdotes and legends specific to the location as their point of departure, or the cellars' particular acoustic and spatial qualities.
The artists and groups of artists used both the vaulted cellaring as well the antechambers and other rooms (originally used for wine production but now used recreationally) as well as the conurbation itself as their point of departure in developing and locating multimedia installative works. The title Wir Haben Alle Ein Motiv (We All Have a Motive/Motif) plays on the (German) ambiguity of motive/motif, addressing the artists' motif but also people's motivation in participating in or visiting the event, the economic motives behind the change from wine-growing to onion-growing, as well as possible criminal motives in everyday and economic contexts that also occur in rural areas.

In the work by Evelyn Kuntscher an imaginary underground station was erected. By means of acoustic and individually positioned visual stimulation the 'tunnel-shaped' wine cellar became a transit space commuting between the remote village and large towns. Topics like locality, seclusion, infrastructure measures or commuter's lives are reflected: why doesn't Unterstinkenbrunn have a rail link? Why isn't it necessary to be on the rail grid anymore? Why is Switzerland the only country planning an interregional underground network? Evelyn Kuntscher selected a cellar with an open end. Is that where the underground line starts?
