VIENNA ART WEEK 2022

This was VIENNA ART WEEK 2022

A review of a week of Challenging Orders

More than 100 events, 70 programme partners, 50 Open Studios, 35 Independent Spaces, 1000m2 for 40 artists in the House of Challenging Orders – this was VIENNA ART WEEK 2022!

The eighteenth edition of VIENNA ART WEEK has come to a successful ending. From 18th to 25th November, under the motto “Challenging Orders”, existing orders were questioned and the political, social and cultural status quo was investigated from different artistic perspectives.

The diverse program with more than 100 free events by almost 70 program partners attracted numerous visitors, and more than a dozen events were rapidly booked out. The studios of 50 artists at the Open Studio Days were very popular, and almost 20 guided walks and barrier-free bus tours led to numerous studios.

This year, the program partners were once again very committed and made a significant contribution to the success of the art week. In addition to the 23 members of the supporting association Art Cluster Vienna, more than 35 independent spaces and independent program partners as well as 11 partner galleries enriched the program with their own events.

The highlights of VIENNA ART WEEK’s own programme included a live talk with the legendary artist collective Guerrilla Girls, a workshop with artist Jenny Marketou, as well as the Line-Up, in which discursive formats, film screenings and performances followed in quick succession for an intensive afternoon. This year’s high-profile guests included Aindrea Emelife (curator, London), Jenny Marketou (artist, Athens/New York), Natascha Strobl (political scientist, Vienna), Manu Luksch (artist, London), Clemens Apprich (professor, University of Applied Arts, Vienna), Katharina Taylor (curator, Kiev) and Brigitte Buchhammer (philosopher, Vienna).

An exhibition curated by the artistic director of the VIENNA ART WEEK Robert Punkenhofer and associate curator Julia Hartmann, the “House of CHALLENGING ORDERS”, attracted more than 3,000 visitors to the 5th district, where on 1,000m2 40 national and international artists questioned existing orders and stimulated reflection. Due to the great success of the exhibition, it was extended over the weekend and ended with a closing party and 24-hour opening on Sunday 27th November.

 

Altogether, VIENNA ART WEEK 2022 with almost 30,000 visitors showed how lively, diverse and internationally connected Vienna’s art scene is. Especially in times of multiple crises, it makes a creative and valuable contribution.
