monocon #2

Four days of exhibitions, discussions, workshops, amusement and destruction, with/by/for monochrom and its friends. Are there better ways to spend time in the Austrian countryside? Definitely not.
We will meet in Lindabrunn (Lower Austria) at VSL… August 29 (6:30 PM) to September 1, 2019 (6:30 PM)!
What is it?
Verein Symposium Lindabrunn (VSL) was founded as a sculpture symposium around 50 years ago… and over the years they created a big sculpture park. There aren’t any sculptural artists wrong at VSL anymore, but the location features all the infrastructure that is needed to live and work together, including a lecture room for 30 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 a big landscaped park area.
How to get to monocon?
VSL 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. Or take the public transport (ÖBB) to Enzesfeld-Lindabrunn.
In case you want to arrive with your own Cessna: Wiener Neustadt Airport (QEW/LOAN) is 10 miles away.
Via public transport
Next train station with regular and frequent operation is Leobersdorf, located on the southbound train line from Vienna to Wiener Neustadt. You can buy online tickets from OEBB. Note that only regional trains and Schnellbahn will stop at Leobersdorf. Change there to a local bus to Lindabrunn HTV. It will terminate directly at the entrance of the sculpture park at Steinbruchstraße. You can buy an online ticket for the whole route at once.
By car
Map search: Steinbruchstraße 25, Enzesfeld-Lindabrunn. There is one parking space at Steinbruchstraße located under shady trees, but around 300m walking distance upwards to the building (driving up is restricted) and another one at Hernsteinerstraße, mainly used for day visitors, more sunny, but almost on the same level as the building (50m to the building, you just need to cross the grassland).
