dear -empyre-

many thanks for renate and tim to host STWST48x5 EXPANDED for the month 
of September.

In conjunction with STAY UNFINISHED, the 5th edition of Stadtwerkstatt‘s 
48 hour showcase extravanganza held in association with Ars Electronica 
in Linz, Austria, the three curators for STWST48x5 - Tanja Brandmayr, 
Shu Lea Cheang, Franz Xaver, proposes a one month (September 2019) long 
discussion on -empyre- listserve.

For the 48 hour programmation in Linz (18:00 september 6 to 18:00 
September 8, 2019), STWST48x5 brings together critical producers, 
artists, activists, networkers, archivists, , visionists +++ to 
negotiate permanently unfinished conditions in cross-disciplinary, 
inter-cultural, mixed genre art (or not so art) practices. Situated 
itself in New Art Contexts, Stadtwerkstatt, an art, club and autonomous 
structure in Linz, Austria since 1979, has been fed with ingredients 
grown through an ideal-typical milieu of heterogeneity of art, media, 
technology, culture and the social. We believe that there are likewise 
cultural/art/experimental spaces and individuals across borders and 
oceans, who are either long time existing or starting fresh, who share 
the same pursuits as STWST collective strive for.

For STWST48x5 EXPANDED on –empyre-,We want to collectively nurture 
processing thoughts and projects. We ask for your active participation 
in this multi-thread living forum where we recount the related/non 
related subjects, reviews /previews of projects in process,the 
strategies and tactics to stay unfinished, stay alive and kicking. 
Tears, laughters, anger, pleasure, satisfaction, frustration expressed 
in public (as texts) are encouraged as we remain unfinished and totally
