Sleep is a complex physiological phenomenon with different cultural and 
physical expressions. Sleep refers to various abilities and aspects of 
the body, which are expressed in rhythms, hormones, fluctuations in 
electrical activity, changes in the activity of organs and body systems, 
among other things. Historically and across cultures, sleep has taken 
various forms in terms of light, work, sex, morality, sound, body and 
human understanding. All these and other factors can be considered as 
the basis for precise, unspectacular experiments within the framework of 

SLEEP48 is a project by Stadtwerkstadt and conceived by Shu Lea Cheang 
and Matthew Fuller, who were inspired by Fuller's latest book “How to 
Sleep, the art, biology and culture of unconsciousness”. STWST48x4 also 
presents an array of new works developed at Stadtwerkstatt under its new 
art contexts initiative: Infolab 
<http://stwst48x4.stwst.at/en/infolab>(led by Franz Xaver) defines the 
concept of information, from synchronous quantum storms to randomness in 
the past and blockchain technology. The Mycelium Network Society 
<http://stwst48x4.stwst.at/en/mycelium_network_society> gives a preview 
of its Patulin installation at Taipei Biennale this year, plus Mycelial 
Radio Activationworkshop by Martin Howse.The art and context research 
Quasikunst <http://stwst48x4.stwst.at/en/quasikunst>(led by Tanja 
Brandmayr) stages faded and blown away coordinates from art agens to 
body movens. An indicative view applies to the Previous Layers 
<http://stwst48x4.stwst.at/en/previous_layers> of earlier Stadtwerkstatt 
projects. And at the Danube shore, the Reouzeri 
<http://stwst48x4.stwst.at/en/reouzeri> offers an after-work sunset area 
of relaxed, cooperative participation.

Stadtwerkstatt <https://stwst.at/>, founded in 1979,has been an active 
player in the context of new media art, presenting provocative and 
challenging projects since the 1980s. Nowadays Stadtwerkstatt is active 
in the areas of New Art Contexts, runs a club and the Cafe Strom.Its 
media output also includes Versorgerin newspaper and other public art 
and discourse events.

STWST48x4 SLEEP,in cooperation with ARS ELECTRONICA 
<http://www.aec.at/festival>, is presented by Stadtwerkstatt at 
Kirchengasse 4, 4040 Linz, Austria.
