When the sky opens up over Linz for the fifth Höhenrausch, birds are at the center of artistic exploration.

As fascinating beings between heaven and earth, birds have always been a projection surface for dreams and fantasies. International artists have been invited, who take an exploratory approach to this complex theme – the spectrum ranges from flight simulation through bird voices all the way to behavior research.

The African gray parrots at Höhenrausch 2015 are cared for by specially trained staff from the ARGE Papageienschutz under the guidance of zoologists.
