The last two years have been marked by an increase in the number of art spaces of various kinds in Vienna, indicating a shift from project making to institution building. Along with galleries, manifold self-organized art initiatives emerged across the city. Utilizing the exhibition How To Live Together we would like to initiate a discussion on the ecologyof the local artistic scene.
The forumis thought to connect so-called artist-run, alternative, off- and project spaces, as well as young galleries and KunsthalleWien in order to engage in a dialogue. It will question the relation of size to scale as being representative of their importance.
Open to the public, It might be brilliant, it’s not new… aims at addressing questions of producing and presenting contemporary art in Vienna by articulating the urgencies faced by respective local art organizations; reflecting on the different models of operating, and the concrete as well as immaterial value they contribute to the local artistic field.
