In the winter of 2008-2009, the 100 year old Station Messschiff Eleonore was bought, adapted and docked by the Donautic team at the Danube harbor in Linz. Since 2009, Eleonore, once a survey vessel, has been powered by solar energy, equipped with radio components and modified to host artists in residency. As part of Stadtwerkstatt’s cultural initiatives that focus on free/open culture and information technology, Eleonore declares itself an autonomous art ship gathering local and international residents for meetings, debates, research and lab works.
