Wiener Festwochen 2017

The Wiener Festwochen 2017 headed by the new artistic director Tomas Zierhofer-Kin will take place from 12 May to 18 June.

"(...)Gathering the historical threads, I would like to position the Wiener Festwochen as a multidisciplinary art festival in the city. Among Vienna's varied and tightly-packed cultural offerings, the point is to present and allow things not yet seen and not yet heard, and to work as a content engine linking genres, thoughts, and ideas. The task of the Wiener Festwochen will therefore be to create frameworks for new alliances, rather than to build new borders and fences of art.
With the “Academy of Unlearning”, postcolonial discourse on questions related to social life and survival will be given ample space. In addition to lectures and dialogues on central topics of a new understanding of the world, the Academy will also have effects on sociopolitical, civic, and artistic practice. The second new format of the 2017 Wiener Festwochen will be an electronic music festival, intending to make the sociopolitical dimension of experimental club culture come alive.
Wiener Festwochen doesn’t aim to be a glossy festival. Rather, it seeks to understand art as a process that enables new solidarities by creating temporary Ground Zeros, thus becoming a field for experimentation for a future society.(...)
Sincerely,
Tomas Zierhofer-Kin"

Programme will be published mid-February 2017.
