Queer Art Space Vienna

Art serves as an important medium for creating a contextual ethical awareness, be it in social, economic, political, or cultural realms. The exhibition »Queer Art Space Vienna« attempts to provide insights into Vienna’s dynamic queer art scene. Here »queer« refers to artistic and cultural practices, which provoke interactions between artwork and spectator—by questioning heteronormative power relations — and therewith shifts in the sociopolitical context. Various performances, lectures, and talks accompany the exhibition.

With works by Aschka & Kopp, Asgar/Gabriel, Assunta A.A.M., Julia Farber, Julia Fuchs, Robert Gabris, Matthias Herrmann, Jakob Lena Knebl, Andrew Mezvinsky, Martina Mina & Sabine Schwaighofer, Roland Reiter, Michal Rutz, Leila Samari & Maryam Sehhat, Toni Schmale, Walter Seidl/Stefan Geissler, Philip Timischl, Violet, Peter Wehinger
