TURNTON DOCKLANDS
Time's Up

7 September until 22 October

During the Ars Electronica Festival 2017 | Featured Artist series

Where is Turnton, the livable little town by the sea? It is everywhere where the art collective Time’s Up sets up the backdrop of the charming bar in the harbor of the fictive coastal settlement and creates an evening mood with comfortably muted dim lighting. As indicated by the job offers divulged on the screen above the closed entrance to the harbor master’s office, several posters in the bar, and a random newspaper left lying around, visitors to the town have unwittingly traveled through time. They find themselves three decades later, in the year 2047. It is anything but comfortable here, though – water and soil are contaminated and entire eco-systems have collapsed. However, there are also positive counter-movements, such as the cultivation of purifying algae, which counteracts the pollution of the sea.

Turnton is a utopian, positive proposal for a possible future that serves the common good, envisioned without fear of omissions. The production stages a space, in which the audience is invited to explore and interpret the Turnton Docklands.

The artists’ collective Time’s Up, based in Linz and internationally active, has been working for more than twenty years at the intersections of art, science, technology, and entertainment.

A culture of welcome needs to be lived. For this, places are needed, where encounters with refugees are possible. LENTOS sees itself as a place like this. The Danube Atelier offers enough room for all age groups, for chats over coffee, and for creative activities.
