Postkastell

INDEPENDENT EXHIBITION . INSTALLATION .
CASTLE . INTERCULTURAL EXCHANGE . TAKE-AWAY-ART .
A PLACE OF TRANSFORMATION & VARIATION. A SHIFTING COLLECTION .

»Postkastell« is a wordplay: a mailbox – a castle – a fortification. To defend the analogue way of mailing, to spread art.
We are four Austrian women – all beeing creative in our very own way: making collages in our sketch books, taking pictures of so called unimportant details, collecting impressions on our way through everyday life. The nostalgic postcard format is our corporate base to present our creative output.
Visitors can give items they have brought along (bus tickets, crown caps, sketches, …) in exchange for one of our postcards. Thus the visitor will continuously alter the content of the »Postkastell« – turning it into a shifting collection. As you can see the »Postkastell« is not a static exhibition, but a traveling site of process and exchange.
