Armin Medosch (1962-2017) has long been associated with Stadtwerkstatt 
in Linz. As a collaborator with its director Franz Xaver – projects 
including /Waves-Liquid Territories/(2008), /Der Bakensender/ (2011), as 
curator for Eleonore residency (/fieldworks/, 2013), as writer for 
Versorgerin, among many articles, /From Total Recall to Digital Dementia 
- Ars Electronica 2013/(2013), his presence at Stadtwerkstatt isdeeply 
felt and missed. On the occasion of STWST48x3,the third edition of 
STWST48 hosted by Stadtwerkstatt, We hold a tribute to Armin Medosch.

Fahim Amir, Jaromil, Darko Fritz, Shu Lea Cheang and friends.

We explore the legacy of Armin Medosch's work from the perspective of 
"free research". Long before artistic research became a fundable 
category, Armin engaged in a various independent, non-institutional 
research endeavors at the intersection of art, media and politics: from 
navigating the Baltic Sea on the MS Stubnitz to building open 
mesh-networks in London, exploring media piracy in Taiwan to 
contributing to the history of early media art in Croatia and 
internationally and to developing the Timeline - Tracing Information 
Society with TECHNOPOLITICS, a free research group in Vienna.What can we 
take from his particular approach of developing a free research as 
interdisciplinary practice for the future?
