‘Praktish Schiße’ is the result of a lecture of the same name in which we discussed artistic, cultural and political dimensions of dirt and cleanliness. We dealt with such different aspects as “the good policy” of the early modern period, aesthetic theories on disgust and disgust, everyday experiences with shit, regulatory policies, work, etc. A focus was the discussion of public and semi-public spaces in the city , such as Linz Central Station.The aim of the exercise is to develop a critical view of the contradictory moments of order and to show how closely purity is linked to violence.In addition, we wonder whether and how art – with artistic methods, strategies and works – can be intervened in practical terms. Be it in the showroom, in institutions, in the state, on the street or at home. How do we encounter the shit that surrounds us? What are we against the cleanliness? How do we get the waste?
