EGGER-LIENZ and OTTO DIX
Imagery between the wars
On October 12, 2019 we were deaf on a tour of the Ferdinandeum Museum about the painters Albin Egger Lienz and Otto Dix. Both painted a lot of pictures about the war and its aftermath after the First World War. At Egger Lienz a lot of brown and ocher colors at Dix a lot more colorful. A great exhibition!
Report on the theater "GERMAN TEACHER"
It has been a few years that the Deaf Association Tyrol works well with the Tyrolean State Theater.
The play was on September 28, 2019 "The German teacher" including sign language.
Almost 40 deaf were there! It was a great performance!
The cultural service point from the state of Tyrol organizes the event "Student meets author". German teacher Mathilda Kaminski and author Xaver Sand see each other again after 16 years.
The author Xaver Sand was with his youth book "Angel wings, angel child and angel blood" successful. A long time ago, the teacher and the author were a couple. But Xaver suddenly left Mathilda. A little later he married the only daughter of a wealthy hotelier. Shortly afterwards a son was born. The world of celebrity opened for Xaver, for Mathilda a world collapsed. How do you meet after so long? At the beginning always by email, then personally. But the stories, the Xaver and Mathilda tell each other are different. Especially when the disappearance of Xaver’s son becomes a topic 14 years ago.

new sign language app LINA
in the Tyrolean dialect of the ÖGS
Learn and communicate sign language with the new LINA app
The Deaf Association Tyrol has developed a new educational tool that enables easy, fast and progressive access to sign language: the sign language app "LINA".
LINA bears the name based on the Latin "lingua" and serves on the one hand as a tool for maintaining and promoting the specific Tyrolean dialect in Austrian sign language, and on the other hand as a learning platform for various target groups such as hearing-impaired children and adolescents in integration classes, children and adults motor, physical and cognitive limitations or multiple disabilities, and also for teachers, social workers and therapists.
"There are dialects not only in the spoken language," explains association leader Monika Mück-Egg. "Of course, we Tyrolean deaf people also sign Tyrolean!" She adds with a smile. "Our project for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Deaf Association Tyrol is an app with over 19,000 words and syllables in the Tyrolean dialect of Austrian sign language."
On the one hand, the sign language app is a directory of Austrian sign language, which the videos illustrate in the Tyrolean dialect of the ÖGS. With the help of the search function, LINA can retrieve the terms, but also special search queries such as one-handed or two-handed gestures, hand shapes, categories and subcategories.
Through LINA, participation, self-determination, motivation to learn, bilingualism, lifelong learning and, last but not least, inclusion, accessibility and awareness of sign language are enabled and implemented in a broad manner.
"Until now there was no corresponding offer in the Tyrolean region, and the need for everyday and work tools was very high," reports Monika Mück-Egg. "Our vision is to map the cultural diversity of Tyrol and to make the mother tongue and identity of the Tyrolean deaf community more visible and approachable in society. We want to share the Tyrolean dialect of Austrian sign language as an intangible cultural heritage with a larger community. It is very important to us to preserve this Tyrolean tradition and form of expression handed down verbally or “manually” by means of gestures and to pass it on to the next generations! ”
How to purchase the LINA sign language app:
Lina is the first digital sign language dictionary from and for Tyroleans.
The app helps to learn sign language and to communicate with the deaf and hearing impaired.
Whether for official matters, at work or on vacation – Lina is always there!
The app with the Starter package can already be downloaded for free and contains about 100 words.
Each additional package contains between 500 and 3,000 words and costs Ђ 9.90 each.
The following word packs are available (from December 2018):
- * Job
- * Leisure
- * Society
- * Household
- * Medicine
- * Others
- * Technology
- * Administration / characters
- * Economy
- * Science
If you buy all packages (9 + 1 free) together, you only pay Ђ 89.90.
The app is available for the iPhone and for Android (keywords: "LINA" and "Sign Language").
