From 1 to 3 October 2015 sculpture network's XIII. International Forum on "Advanced Media/ Expanded Sculpture" took place in Linz, Austria. It was curated by Gottfried Hattinger and board member Beatriz Blanch. 70 artists, art agents and friends of the arts from 10 different countriesparticipated.
We were welcomed by the deputy mayor in the town hall and continued on to the Lentos art museum, where we enjoyed the exhibition by Cathy Wikles on a tour led by director Stella Rolling.

The next day the event continued with presentations at the Mediendeck at OK Offenes Kulturhaus Oberösterreich. International experts, artists and participants discussed the exploration of the symbiosis of haptic and virtual space, its history and philosophy and its tools and artworks.
As early as the beginning of the twentieth century sculpture began to "move" as a result of the implemenation of small electric motors. How and in what manner does advancing media effect three-dimensional art today? Contributors were Nicolas Lambert (UK), lecturer at Birbeck University in London, Miqui Guillén (Spain) from Factum Arte, the artists Matthew Plummer-Fernandez (UK) and Quayola (Italy), and Martin Sturm (Austria), director of OK Mediendeck. To complete the day the participants visited the impressive exhibition "Höhenrausch" at OK Kulturquartier. In the parallel showroom sculptors and institutions presented their work and projects in catalogues and pictures.
