Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber: Trophäen ihrer Exzellenz
Exhibition in the SCHAURAUM Angewandte
Opening: Wed, May 25, 19:00
Venue: SCHAURAUM Angewandte
Exemplary objects speak about the complicity between architecture and changing power relations in the transformation of Johann Wolfgang Goethe-university in Frankfurt: the university changed from a castle-like citizens' university of the German Empire to a modernist mass university, including the Frankfurt School, to neoliberal “Clusters of Excellence”.
Sabine Bitter & Helmut Weber, based in Vancouver and Vienna, have worked on projects addressing cities, architecture, and the politics of representation and of space since 1994.

Don't know where going. An animated conversation between Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard
Exhibition in the ASIFAKEIL
Opening: Mon, May 30, 15:00
A collaborative animation project by Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard. The film will be an animated dialogue between the two animators. One animator draws a small sequence and the next animator draws the next sequence going on and on straight ahead without a plan for roughly 750 frames (1 minute).
Content will form itself naturally, only through associative moving images with no planing ahead.
The film will be projected on a loop in the exhibtion presented along side frames from the film, that will be for sale.
Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard are Q21 Artists-in-Residence at the MuseumsQuartier Wien in May (invited by VIS Vienna Independent Shorts in cooperation with ASIFA AUSTRIA).

Maria Legat aka Miz Justice: Gebärstreik ONE
Installation in the STREET ART PASSAGE VIENNA
Opening: Fri, Jun 03, 18:00,the artist and the curator will be present
Venue: STREET ART PASSAGE VIENNA, between MQ and Breite Gasse
Apartheid, racism, environmental pollution, and war, to be short: injustices, are topics which have influenced the artist early on. Legat's recent works show the artists' "love for justice" as she states herself. She calls her series "personality splitters", which gain tension from the manifold possibilities of interpretation as well as from the interaction of the picture's content and the viewers' personal contribution. During the search for meaning, the recipient is integrated in the narrative and will discover the artist's political demands.
