Treffpunkt Afrika #3 – Afropea Now! is a project by Stadtwerkstatt
Stadtwerkstatt was founded in 1979 by a group of art students in Linz, Austria. The engagement of Stadtwerkstatt has always had a political dimension and the practice of opening and providing free space has always been a central part of the collective. Along with Cafe Strom and the events hosted in the house at Kirchengasse 4, Stadtwerkstatt is also the operational basis for confrontation with contemporary issues.
