All the best culture and art events happening in Vienna right NOW & coming weeks

Have a look at one of the most renowned works of art

BASQUIAT. The Retrospective.

So Albertina has something really special up its sleeve this fall: Until January 8, you can visit the exhibition of Jean-Michel Basquiat. He is the perfect representative of art from the 80ies and the first ever world-famous artist with Afro-American-Caribbean roots. His work revolves around African heritage as well as problematic hierarchies in society.

ALSO, Albertina is open until 9pm on Wednesday and Friday. AND, if you’re under 19, you can get in for free! Yesss.

Check out modern art of the 20s

Hagenbund – from moderate to radical Modernism

The artists’ association Hagenbund was founded in 1900 in response to the conservatism of the Künstlerhaus and by the late 1920s the association was known for their revolutionary artists. So if you want to know what the people of the 1920s considered modern, contemporary and refreshing (other than, you know, opium…) then make sure to check out this exhibition.

Don't wear your 5€ sweater to this exhibtion

We Love Our Customers

Stefanie Moshammer points her finger at something that everyone kind of knows but nobody wants to admit: the fast fashion industry. In her ongoing exhibition, she critiques and parodies the fashion industry and its followers. Get out to learn something you didn’t know you didn’t know. (You read that right…)

Follow the footsteps of an inspiring woman

Tilla Durieux – a witness to a century and her roles

She was THE star back in the 1920s and for good reason. She was truly an inspiring woman, not only because of her success in the theatre and film industry but for her commitment to fighting for social justice throughout her time in exile in Zurich during World War I, during the turmoil of the Munich Soviet Republic and as a member of the Zagreb resistance against National Socialism. Follow this woman’s inspiring journey at this exhibition dedicated to her life.

It's time to put on your turtleneck

Pollock. Rothko. Lassnig. Ways of Freedom

At this exhibition, Albertina Modern gives you insight into an international dialogue of over a hundred artists in the art movements of abstract expressionism and informalism. The artworks shown have been created between the mid-1940s to the end of the Cold War. Definitely worth seeing the art world’s response to these times!

Educate yourself

This is what we demand! Minority movements in Austria

This travelling exhibition (that’s right, it travels and you have to catch it) highlights the fight for equality for minorities throughout Austria’s history. Presented by the association Minderheiten, authors and activists show the struggles of minorities and their impactful protests in the past, present and what might come in the future.

Check out some amazing photojournalism

ERNST HAAS. THE ART OF SEEING

Looking at photojournalism from a local Viennese artist sounds good to you? Then this exhibition at WestLicht is definitely the place to be. 120 pieces from Ernst Haas during different creative periods of his career are waiting for you. Don’t hesitate to swing by!

Nane Oda Lavutaris / Who Will Play for Me?

Emília Rigová

What do pianos and people from eastern and southern Europe have in common? You don’t know? Then we suggest that you go find out at this installation at Mumok. It’ll invite you to rethink your own views on people who are often referred to as ‘Roma’. Look at their historical and present experiences through art and take a plunge into the struggle of self-image and foreign determination. Get in touch with something you probably haven’t before.

Something eye-opening for sure!

James T. Hong: Apologies v 2016.2, 2021

I am sorry for this, I am sorry for that… If you are looking for an exhibition with a different approach to documenting human atrocities, then Jüdisches Museum is a must. This exhibition will make you reflect, rethink political decision-making and leave you emotional, for sure. Don’t miss out!

Catch Gregor Sailer at Kunst Haus Wien

UNSEEN PLACES

Seemingly inaccessible landscapes, locked down areas, almost no civilization and in the middle of it all: Architecture. Photographs taken at the verge of possibility. If you want to see something you definitely have not seen before, Kunst Haus Wien is your place to be. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Architecture nerds listen up!

ATELIER BAUHAUS

No, this is not an exhibition about the company Bauhaus. (But wouldn’t that be fun? Just a bunch of dads standing around looking at woods and whatever they sell at Bauhaus?) This exhibition is about the Bauhaus architecture! Simple, flat and practical is how most would describe this style. So if you like cupboards impregnated by chairs (or something like that), then make sure to swing by!

Learn a bit about the (300 year) old Belvedere

Das Belvedere – 300 Years a Venue for Art

It’s been 300 loooong years since the Belvedere palace was built but do you even know what it was used for and why it exists? In case you don’t we highly recommend you go check out this exhibition at the Belvedere itself. Yes, get out there and learn some cool new facts!

 

Think out of the box

The Fest – ZWISCHEN REPRÄSENTATION UND AUFRUHR

Breaking taboos, challenging society and activating your critical thinking is what the Fest is all about. So this one is for the critics, the thinkers, the philosophers one might even dare to say! No, on a serious note, this exhibition will for sure inspire you to think differently, so check it out!
