Brief description  

The intervention, “Hoamatgsang – A Folk Song” deals with the mechanism of establishing a national or regional identity and the phenomena of exclusion resulting from it. The Upper Austrian regional anthem, which is also an identity builder, forms the central “theme” of the intervention.

This identity carrier is challenged in its present form and the possibility of its exclusion is reversed with the help of adoption and further development. The anthem would first be translated in about 20 languages and would then be sung by native speakers.
