Land for Us All

Exhibition at the Az W

The earth's surface is a finite resource, and soil is our most precious commodity. Careless or capital-driven treatment of this resource has massively changed the shape and function of our towns and villages in recent decades.

The earth's surface is a finite resource, and soil is our most precious commodity. Careless or capital-driven treatment of this resource has massively changed the shape and function of our towns and villages in recent decades. In view of the threat of a climate catastrophe and rising housing prices, the question arises as to whether the current path, with maximum compromises and minimum adaptation, is still sustainable. An extensive and couragous land policy is called for, where is it?

The progressive urban sprawl of the countryside has been the subject of discussion for decades. Meanwhile, everybody in Austria could be housed in the single-family homes that already exist 1), although yet more land is still being approved for building on, new shopping centres are going up on greenfield sites and whole chalet villages in the Alps. Progressive sealing of the surface is contributing to the climate crisis and endangering food security. Speculation with land is increasing housing prices and leading to a creeping privatisation of public space. Weak or unenforced spatial planning regulations, a partly misguided tax law and subsidy system, and a despondent policy perpetuate the status quo instead of developing a vision for the future.

The exhibition explains the political, legal and economic background clearly and vividly, critically and sometimes inadvertantly absurdly. How does rural land become building land? Why is the price of land rising? What does all this have to do with our lives and dreams? Case studies and explanations of the relevant terminology bring light into the thicket of responsible agents involved. International comparisons illustrate strengths and weaknesses, international examples of best practice show alternative approaches. A collection of existing and feasible new tools points the way to spatial planning that conserves land as a resource, mitigates climate change, helps with housing issues and facilitates good architecture. We are all being called upon to think and act along new lines — and this exhibition is preparing the way.

And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?

A joint exhibition of Kunsthalle Wien and Wiener Festwochen

“And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” writes the Chilean poet and activist Cecilia Vicuña in her 1971 poem Precarious.

“And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” writes the Chilean poet and activist Cecilia Vicuña in her 1971 poem Precarious.

The exhibition curated by Miguel A. López reflects on the rationale of exploitation, the fast-paced mining of raw materials, and environmental destruction as a colonial legacy. It tells the story of indigenous struggles for collective survival and celebrates encounters defined by solidarity in their resistance to misogyny, imperialist violence, and state oppression. Some of the contributions are a specific response to the Covid-19 pandemic, not just as a health crisis, but also as one of ecological and social justice.

EAT LOVE. Tomorrow’s Food and Food Spaces

A joint project by the Vienna Business Agency and the MAK

The nomadic studio mobil / think tank station is touring through Vienna for the duration of the Biennale to provide a view into the future of our nutrition. Under the motto “Let's talk food”, the VBA is analysing the entire food cycle – from the fields to the shops and, finally, to our plates – to explore how urban food supplies might look in future.

The nomadic studio mobil / think tank station is touring through Vienna for the duration of the Biennale to provide a view into the future of our nutrition. Under the motto “Let's talk food”, the VBA is analysing the entire food cycle – from the fields to the shops and, finally, to our plates – to explore how urban food supplies might look in future. Therefore, in keeping with the overall theme of this year’s Vienna Biennale, the topic chosen by the Vienna Business Agency is EAT LOVE. Tomorrow’s Food and Food Spaces.

In response to a specific challenge, the Viennese creative scene has developed ecological and socially sustainable solutions for the ever-continuing transformation processes identifiable in our diets, our consumer behaviour and associated methods of production. The best ideas will be showcased for three days and three nights at the Vienna Biennale, at various locations in Vienna and at Vienna Design Week.

The dialogue surrounding the urgent issues of food supplies will continue with a symposium Planet Matters Symposium.

In summer 2020, a group of artists and culture workers founded the four-hectare “Land of the Goddesses” in the Pulkau Valley (Lower Austria). This is biodiverse land covered with vineyards, forests, overgrown scrubland, wasteland, and fallow. The land will be used for THE DISSIDENT GODDESSES’ NETWORK—a research project at the Academy of Fine Arts—as a laboratory for an investigation in the sense of contemporary Eco Art and deep ecology practice. A Mongolian yurt on a Palaeolithic site near Alberndorf serves as an in-situ parliament for encounters, projects, storytelling, and community teaching. The aim is to facilitate measures against climate change: targeted planting, water detection, improvement of humus.

With one of her interventions, a viewing walkway, the artist stages temporarily existing species-rich plant societies/biotopes of urban areas, which are in a waiting loop for a new spatial planning, as a possible format of public and social space.

Gabriele Sturm explores the relevance of such CO HABITATS for our quality of life in the city and offers a possibility to discover a paradise at every stop of her project.

The consequences of the global climate crisis are still abstract and diffuse for many people. With their work, the artist duo makes the effects of the global climate catastrophe visible and comprehensible for viewers in the Viennese urban space at Karlsplatz. A glance through binoculars - and a virtually animated flood scenario is reversed.

ECO FLIRT

An exhibition by students of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Class of Elisabeth von Samsonow, co-curated by Kate Strain

This exhibition starts with the simple theory that art specializes in perception.

This exhibition starts with the simple theory that art specializes in perception. So what form of perception is needed to respond appropriately to the ecological and climate crisis? How can art capture, represent, and project the intertwining of subject and milieu? What forms of mapping can art develop when it comes to sketching out a new concept of “environment”? In this exhibition, several groups of students from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna focus on different levels and dimensions of the perception of environments and present their results and proposals. The show highlights both very empathetic and molecular mappings, reactions, and translations of internal and external environments.

MAK FUTURE LAB: DIGITAL & CIRCULAR

LEARNING AND LIVING CIRCULAR SOCIETY

Vor dem Hintergrund der Ausstellung DIGITAL & CIRCULAR organisiert das MAK ein MAK FUTURE LAB, bei dem Ansätze für eine digital unterstützte Transformation zur Kreislaufgesellschaft erörtert werden.

Panel discussion in the MAK Lecture Hall

Registration required, free admission
The 3G rule must be met for entry:
Vaccinated, Tested, Recovered.
A FFP2 mask must be worn during the entire visit to the museum, and a distance of one meter maintained between people who do not live in the same household.

Entrance: Weiskirchnerstraße 3 (opposite Stadtpark)
Participation from home: click here for the Live-Stream

Against the background of the exhibition DIGITAL & CIRCULAR, the MAK has organized a MAK FUTURE LAB to debate approaches for a digitally supported transformation towards circular society. A top-class panel will discuss, among others, the following questions: Which primary systemic change is needed for a circular society? How can we prevent the great transformation of economy and society from leading to an enormous additional accumulation of material? In which areas would circular economy be particularly important? Which would be the three most urgent digital innovations to lend key importance to biological and technical cycles? How can we accelerate the transition from glass consumers to transparent cycle-oriented companies by means of digital innovations? How can we as a society learn circular thinking in the best and fastest way? How can we live circular society in everyday life and how should human-machine-interfaces be designed to optimally use the power of innovation for this purpose?

We take this complex problem and turn it into a super simple itinerary – a step-by-step guide for companies on their carbon reduction journey. It's science translated into actionable steps. It's saving the planet with the whole team on board.


Our annual flagship event, the Climate Impact Day, inspires and celebrates employee engagement. Companies tap into a large pool of modules, identify and implement solutions, and raise awareness for climate action. The event is accompanied by inspiring talks and presentations broadcasted live from the MAK.

MAK Dialogues: CLIMATE PANDEMICS: Dark Euphoria

ONLINE ZOOM-TALK

Curator Marlies Wirth in conversation with the artists Kerstin von Gabain and Ivan Pérard

The exhibition CLIMATE PANDEMICS takes science fiction, especially climate fiction, as the starting point for artistic reflection. In conversation with Marlies Wirth, the two Vienna-based artists Kerstin von Gabain and Ivan Pérard will introduce their works and underlying ideas: the fossilized bones and aDNA (ancient DNA) sequencing of long extinct species and the theory of self-replicating molecular nano technology (gray goo scenario).
