Moussa Kone and Erwin Uhrmann curated an arts program for Melk Abbey in 2014: Visual Arts, Literature, Dance and Film. The invited artists and authors explored the history of this famous art historic spot in Austria's cultural landscape, with its influence on religious, economical and political issues over the centuries. The book is not only an extensive documentation of the group exhibition, site specific interventions and its performances, it is a major part of the project itself. It contains art critical texts, philosophical articles and short novels by poets written especially for "Points of Passage". It includes artworks of the visual artists Katharina Gruzei, Ines Hochgerner, Bernhard Hosa, Manuel Hölzl, Moussa Kone, Stephan Lugbauer, Rainer Prohaska, Markus Proschek, Bianca Regl, Corinne L.Rusch and Yusimi Moya Rodriguez.
