The Lentos is another highlight of Linz’s riverside cityscape. Set immediately adjacent to the Brucknerhaus and the Danube Park, this architecturally striking museum dedicated to modern and contemporary art opened in 2003. The facility is extraordinary in numerous respects—for instance, the 2,500-m2 main exhibition hall, the largest of its kind in Austria, was conceived to display works of art in just the right light to do justice to them.

During the Ars Electronica Festival, Ralo Meyer is going to present a history from 1986 to 2003, from the crash of the Challenger to the crash of the Columbia, raising questions on how we perceive our world. This installation will be in the Lentos’ 1st Underground Level.
