Water is life. A river is a habitat, a cultural setting, a boundary and a link. The region centrally shaped by the Danube is a social space that is constantly in motion, undergo- ing changes and thus allowing for cultural diversity.
The Danube ows through 10 countries on its route to the sea – more than any other river in the world. For over two thousand years, it has been Europe’s political, com- mercial, and cultural lifeline. The city of Linz has a privileged location on the Danube and is celebrating this fact in 2018 with DonauArt – an inter-institutional exhibition project.
Contemporary artworks will be on display in the city’s exhibition spaces and public areas. The element of water is the main theme and source of inspiration.
