Rivers are lifelines, sometimes open sewers, sometimes national borders… What is life like on and beside rivers? To find out, the artist’s co-operative Time’s Up, along with a number of colleagues, travelled along the Murray (Australia), the Danube and several Belgian canals. They used vessels built from sustainable materials and powered only by natural energy, and they spoke to residents along the way. The exhibition is a lively documentary of their travels and the stories they recorded.
• Time’s Up was started up in 1996 in Linz and focuses on interactive media and ‘machine art’.
