Can you make it? Inspired by Jules Verne’s classic, Ars Electronica, voestalpine and Linz09-Cultural Capital of Europe dispatch the city of Linz on a similar journey around the world. But this does not entail any physical travel; travel takes place via optical cables and satellite links, and the stops along the way will be 20 locations, each one of which stands for a theme of crucial importance to our future.
