feld 72's temporary Museum for Public Space is setting up shop again in Salzburg.

Salzburg is a town where global meets regional and local, where identities are “exploited” and specific expectations generated or perhaps courted. What is “other” or “different” occupies – in diverse manifestations – considerable space in the town, whether in the form of visitors in the flourishing tourist industry or during the Summer Festival, or of increasing numbers of refugees passing through Salzburg, due to its situation near the German border.

From backstage of tourism to Arrival City (Doug Sanders), Salzburg holds visible and invisible traces of globalism, which also influence the everyday life of the town.

Participants will analyse contemporary phenomena of Salzburg's public space, and go on to develop projects for it, realising these in the form of interventions or similar, in specific situations. The course will place emphasis on learning and developing new methods, strategies, tactics and tools for dealing with public space.

A place in the town centre will serve the group as a workshop and home base for holding discussions. At the end of the course, the projects will be presented to the public on a conducted tour, and documented in the temporary Museum for Public Space.
