Exhibition: Carla Bobadilla, »25 minutes journey into the present«

From the series »Österreichs kulturelles Erbe«, 2017 / © Carla Bobadilla

A 25-minute fiacre drive through Vienna’s inner city. It turns out the coachman is a dentist from Bolivia. He relates in Spanish to the tourists from Miami about the history of Vienna and points out visible traces of the Monarchy, while musing on his years as a peripatetic dentist in the Amazon region. This ride is at the heart of an exhibition about cultural and media-related translation. The “stories on wheels” are not centered on a limousine equipped with interactive gadgets, but on a fiacre. Yet the exhibition addresses a theme that has a great deal to do with technology and its effects on global migration.
