Art serves as an important medium for creating a contextual ethical awareness, be it in social, economic, political, or cultural realms. The exhibition “Queer Art Space Vienna” attempts to provide insights into Vienna’s dynamic queer art scene. Here “queer” refers to artistic and cultural practices, which provoke interactions between artwork and spectator — by questioning heteronormative power relations — and therewith shifts in the sociopolitical context. Various performances, lectures, and talks accompany the exhibition.
