Unfreezing the Scene marks the eighth edition of the Kunsthalle Wien Prize, and refers to a scene, an art scene that is currently taking over Karlsplatz, momentarily disrupting the city.

The works by Gleb Amankulov, Albin Bergström, Alexandru Cosarca, Charlotte Gash, Tijana Lazović, Juliana Lindenhofer, Julius Pristauz, Raphael Reichl, Vanessa Schmidt, and Ramiro Wong – many of which are new productions – give expression to the plurality of questions that are lived at the two local art academies and beyond.

The Kunsthalle Wien Prize 2022 is realized with the kind and generous support of Dekotrend.
