Where to go and what to do – every week, PW-Magazine selects the most exciting events and exhibitions that should not be missed in Vienna!


Monday – June 11

#FEST Mico | Macro
Multimedia artist Ryoji Ikeda transforms Halle E in the MuseumsQuartier into an oversized world of moving images and sounds; creates a field of imagination between quantum physics, empirical experimentation and human perception.

#ART The Fondle Tour
Right before hitting Rotterdam, London and Amsterdam, Mitra Saboury, Nina Sarnelle, and Megan Snowe bring their three-person show to Zentrale. The exhibition is an intimate event of everyday erotica, humor and doubt.


Tuesday – June 12

The ALBERTINA Museum is devoting a retrospective presentation to photographer Alfred Seiland that will show around 80 works. Seiland was one of Austria’s first artistic photographers to work exclusively in color.

#FEST 10000 gestes
The formation of communities and their potential for conflict are central themes of Boris Charmatz’s choreographic work. His 10000 gestes can be seen both as an animated painting and as an artistic commentary on socio-political dynamics. At Gösserhallen.

#MUSIC Vague Album Release
With „Land“ the band Vague presents its new album at Arena Wien. The result is a sophisticated and modern post-indie pop album, which self-confidently settles between the common categories and the fault lines of the genre.

#MUSIC Manifest
Placed firmly at the epicentre of Bristol’s currently buoyant house music scene, Shanti Celeste​ has already proved her salt as a multi-talented artist. Manifest has now invited the DJ to the SASS.
