City programme with co-operation partners
Together with over 60 institutions, initiatives and organisations, the Klima Biennale Wien has drawn up a programme of events to communicate to a wider audience the concerns raised by the climate debate. Foto Arsenal Wien will be presenting two exhibitions to mark World Water Day 2024: Beate Gütschow’s ‘Resistance. Flood. Fire.’ and Laure Winant’s ‘From a Tongue We Are Losing’. At Belvedere 21, Angelika Loderer’s ‘Soil Fictions’ and Oliver Ressler’s ‘Dog Days Bite Back’ will look at the impact of the climate crisis. The Weltmuseum Wien and the Künstlerhaus Vereinigung will be showing ‘Unknown Artists of the Amazon’ and ‘Kubus III’ respectively, the latter featuring works by Michael Goldgruber and Markus Guschelbauer (curated by Anke Armandi, Maria Grün and Lena Knilli). The exhibition ‘Vanishing Structures’ at Kunsthalle Exnergasse explores the issues associated with the disappearance of architectures, landscapes, peoples and traditions. Kunsthalle Wien is teaming up with the Wiener Festwochen to look at links between the cosmos and/or the sun and social and political movements. In a new conceptual design, the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) is showing an immersive spatial installation by the artists’ collective Troika (Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastian Noel), focusing on the complex forms of non-human intelligence. Key participants in the festival with various events and projects include the Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Architekturzentrum Wien, the Brunnenpassage, the House of Austrian History, the Vienna University Children’s Office, the MuseumsQuartier Wien, the cinemas Stadtkino im Künstlerhaus and Admiral Kino as well as the Vienna University of Technology. The Klima Biennale Wien is creating free spaces for activist groups in collaboration with the Wiener Festwochen and the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art, Vienna. As safe spaces, they provide retreat and networking opportunities to organise everyday activist life. The project takes place at the Museum’s open spaces.
