Space of Questions: Kunsthalle Wien Online Art Talks

Talk
20/1 2021 6 pm — 7:15 pm
Online

You are cordially invited to join our virtual Space of Questions – a space opening up around a selected artwork which is on view in one of our current exhibitions. It is open questions which drive us and that we therefore want to propose for collective enquiry.

Each Space of Questions (duration: 75 minutes) begins with a contextualizing introduction. It is followed by a proposal for an enquiring focus on the art work, offering an impulse for the subsequent conversation.

Currently, the exhibition on filmmaker Želimir Žilnik (Shadow Citizens) and the group show Cybernetics of the Poor  raise questions such as: Who benefits from stepping out of the shadows of social discrimination? Do algorithms model what we perceive as happiness today? What is human? When do we feel the machine?

We understand this virtual Space of Questions also as a stimulus for a visit to the exhibition, as long as we are not yet able to offer guided tours or art talks on site.
