monochrom convention #3

Four days of art, discussion and workshops with/by/for monochrom and friends.

Where and when is it?

We will meet in Lindabrunn (Lower Austria) at Symposion Lindabrunn... June 30 to July 3, 2022.

What is it?

Verein Symposium Lindabrunn (VSL) was founded as a sculpture symposium 55 years ago and evolved into a transdisciplinary art location over the years. The big sculpture park is now used for landart installations, too. The location also features all the infrastructure needed to live and work together, including an exhibition space, a lecture room for 50 people, workspaces (both for office work and building stuff), and a big outdoor BBQ area. The central buildings are located beside a quarry (needed in former times to mine stones for sculptural work) and overlooks the big landscaped park area.

How to get to monocon?

Symposion Lindabrunn is located around 60km south of Vienna, in the municipality of Lindabrunn.

By plane

Via Vienna International Airport (VIE), take a rental car from there.

In case you want to arrive with your own Cessna: Wiener Neustadt Airport East (QEW/LOAN) is just 10 miles away.

Via public transport

Take the hourly operating ÖBB train to Leobersdorf, located on the southbound train line from Vienna to Wiener Neustadt. Change to the local bus 312 (bound for Hernstein), get off at Lindabrunn, Angergasse. The 300 m walk through the sculpture park to Symposion Lindabrunn is clearly marked when you get off the bus. You can buy tickets for the whole ride in advance from OEBB.

By car

Map search: Steinbruchstraße 25, Enzesfeld-Lindabrunn. Take the southbound highway (A2), Exit 29 Leobersdorf. Continue to Hirtenberg, Enzesfeld, Lindabrunn. You will see the big landmark of the sculpture park when you get there. There is a parking lot down at Steinbruchstraße, situated under shady trees, another one is located up at Hernsteinerstraße, mainly used for day visitors, a bit more sunny, but almost at the same height as the building (and just 50 meters from the building, you only need to cross the grassland).

Where to stay?

Accommodation we can recommend:

  • 20 tents are available directly at the sculpture park (full infrastructure at main building). Contact us to reserve one. If you want to bring your own mobile palace, please check with us in advance.
  • Sportschule Lindabrunn: The guest rooms of the sports training facility are within walking distance - around 1 km. Around 30 rooms should be available. Contact them directly.
  • Gästezimmer Pfleger: Still within walking distance (below 3 km, around 30 minutes walk). They do have a pool.
  • If you come by car and want a higher standard, we can recommend Leobersdorfer Hof, a 6 km drive from the Symposion.

  • What to expect?
