„What is to give light must endure burning.“

Dr. Viktor Frankl | Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist (1905-1997)

Really burning for an issue often takes the risc of BURNING OUT, mostly bringing negative effects to our daily lifes. Frankl saw it, expressed in a very simplified manner, as a necessary healing process. Only the extinguished fire and the cold ash create space for new things and the possibility of a new start and a new beginning!

In this sense, BURN-IN is already inflaming the fourth exhibition series and presents the ignite ART transfers 2018. The current call for entries is aimed exclusively at cross-thinking artists who want to develop and implement a holistic concept together with BURN-IN, apart from classical gallery and art distribution channels. An interdisciplinary symbiosis of art and marketing / communication & management that focuses on emotionality as well as on strategy. Artists who are really burning for their issues, who are looking for a reliable, professional and confidential contact  with many years of expert know-how , the ideal partner for the realization of your sparked transfers. This promising symbiosis bases on the contemporary gallery and think tank (Vienna) and the marketing agency (Linz), which foccuses on strategic, emotional brand development.

Therefore BURN-IN is organizing 12 tailor-made monthly exhibitions presenting the works to art collectors, organizations and the public. The result: sustainable interventions with depth.

In addition to stationary exhibitions, BURN-IN is also increasingly capturing the hearts of the international art aficionados with its extensive online activities (homepage, social media, newsletters). Opportunities that open up completely new perspectives for you too.

But back to the core issue: since 2008, BURN-IN has been working actively in the field of tension between business and art and provides with artistic interventions valuable impulses for companies and organizations.

In Austria BURN-OUT and BORE-OUT cause the tremendous economic loss of € 7 billion (source: Prof. Friedrich Schneider, J. Kepler, University of Linz, Germany): € 2,300 to € 130,000).

While BURN-OUT is mainly based on stress, an imbalance between performance and recognition (effort | reward) or workloads, BORE-OUT is based on a long-term insufficient mental workloads.


In addition, appreciation and  endowment of life are gain more and more in importance in private, public and particularly entrepreneurial context ensureing an intended work-life balance.

The special theme #ROADtoGREEN_ART provides new impulses and was defined as a program focus during the repositioning of the gallery. Green Art for Indoor and OUTDOOR.
