smashing wor(l)ds

June 23 - 28, 2021
Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, Atelierhaus, Lehargasse 8,
1060 Wien, 1. OG Atelier Süd

Exhibition and performative lab by students of the Department of Conceptual Art (Post-Conceptual Art Practices) at the Institute of Fine Arts in cooperation with the project Smashing Wor(l)ds.

The COVID-19 pandemic redefined public space. Many citizens disappeared from public space, and meanwhile this space was also abused by the right-wing mob. On the other hand, by regulating the use of public space, the state has left people to themselves, to their traumatic past, their precarious present and their self-isolation. Many are made invisible. We will deal with these issues, in the centre and on the periphery of the city.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: Asma Aiad and Ju Yoo, Rui Bai, Victoria Eliseykina, Robert Jolly, Ali Kianmehr, Aaron Kimmig, Nathalie Köbli with Arno Gitschthaler and Felix Huber, Mika Maruyama, Mirjana Mustra and Lieber Michael, Mohammad Numan, Valentin Pfenniger, Jovita Pristovsek, Sisanmi Schuller, Timotheus Ueberall, Imrich Veber, Kyra Sophie Wilhelmseder, Tino Zimmermann, Cathérine Lehnerer with Rawan Almohamad, Munar Khalid Biiq and Arabina Amedoska

In cooperation with Österreichischer Wissenschaftsfonds, FWF, (AR 679), and the Projekt _Smashing Wor(l)ds_ funded by Creative Europe under the lead of kulturen in bewegung/VIDC, Vienna.
