‘Freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL’ which is this spot’s full name, is one of my absolute favorite places in Vienna when it comes to new, different, interesting and sometimes freaky art. I love it there.
They show international exhibition projects with the contribution of Artists-in-Residence that get you to start thinking. Every exhibition they’ve come up with so far, I have found very much worth going to and I always recommend a visit to my friends. So now I want to share it with a greater circle of friends, that is: you.
Until June 3rd, Freiraum quartier21 is now showing “Shaping Democracy – the republic in 24 frames per century” an exhibition that looks at the history of the Austrian Republic, its collective memory as well as its self-perception, and external perception on the ground of essential guidelines and paradoxes.
Two nice features: admission is free (rather seldom the case in Vienna’s art spaces). And it’s never as crowded as it gets in Leopold Museum, just across the square, which by the way is one of the best art museums in Vienna – you might have figured.
So you won’t have trouble finding it, it’s close to Mariahilferstraße, check the MQ map.
