Exhibition: »Stopover – Ways of Temporary Exchange«
The fact that Vienna is still considered the gateway between “East” and “West” is related to Austria’s history as a monarchy and its role as a neutral country and destination for “guest workers” from the 1960s onwards. Vienna has continued this long history of cultural exchange by playing host to artists and scientists from neighboring countries.
Artistic contributions deal with friendship and exchange, social movements and activism, the historic dimension of imperialism, its effects today, and the surge of new nationalisms. Accompanying events offer the opportunity for exchange.
