The OK Center for Contemporary Art is a museum with a strong focus on contemporary art and media art. It has served for over 20 years as an experimental lab and production facility for a generation of young artists from all over the world. Its infrastructure includes 1,800 m2 of exhibition space, apartments for artists-in-residence, workplaces, sound studios and video editing rooms.
During Linz’s term as European Capital of Culture in 2009, the OK staged the first Höhenrausch [High-altitude Euphoria], one of the most successful exhibitions of contemporary art ever produced in Austria.
