Literature as a European mother tongue: In our series “One is a CROWD”, we introduce you to authors from all over Europe who will be involved in the CROWD omnibus reading tour, taking place from May to July 2016, featuring 100 authors who will be travelling through 15 European countries. We asked them five questions about text production, reception and mediation. In case you were wondering what a literary activist from Vienna looks like, meet Stefanie Sargnagel!
The INTRE:FACE Digital Conference (06.02.2016-07.02.2016), organized by Katharina Deloglu and Tom Bresemann, hosted by Andreas Bülhoff, tackled many important questions regarding digital literature. In a series of articles we bring you the speeches and discussions held at the INTRE:FACE Digital Conference, dealing with problems regarding digital literature and different tools used to construct it, for example how can digital tools be used to offer new approaches to production, what digital tools already exist and how are they structured, to more applied problems, such as how can literary activists use digital means to connect with one another, how we can make most of digital material and many other interesting topics.

The FORUM STADTPARK is a place of production and presentation for contemporary art. This house, which is organized as an artists association, stands for an expanded definition of art and for an intersectional work in different areas.
How could places which are laboratories and platforms like Forum Stadtpark are an issue for a sustainable society (in regard to social, political, but also ecological aspects)?
How could such places are an issue as “real places” in the time of World Wide Web?
If every human being is an artist – how are persons reachable, who didn’t have anything to do with Avant-Garde-Art until now?
