Essentials January 21 - 27

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!

Tuesday - January 22

Art Opening
Wassermann
The sixth show of the series The White Dwarf Magazine features the artists Flora Hauser and Lukas Matuschek at the White Dwarf Projects.

Wednesday - January 23

Art Opening
Altered States
Five artists apply the method of decontextualisation in varying ways to explore concerns that arise when examining the concepts of time, space, identity, memory, and the present. The exhibited projects weave an intimate narrative that generates questions about the human being and the circumstances that surround us. At Kunsthalle Exnergasse.

Thursday - January 24

ENDO
David Wampach’s performance ENDO is an exciting and invigorating take on the history of performance art. A contemporary manifesto for an entertaining, insatiable, and colourful body at Tanzquartier Wien.

Art Rundgang Sponsored
]a[ Rundgang Day 1
PW-Magazine recommends this year’s highlights of the »Rundgang« through the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna’s classes and workshops.

Art Opening
Äpfel Birnen Ananas
One should not compare apples to pears, and certainly not pears to pineapples. This explains the title of the exhibition, in which three artistic positions are united which at first sight appear similar yet which, upon closer inspection, demonstrate very idiosyncratic personalities at Christine Koenig Galerie.

Art Opening
Bad Engine
Felix Kultaus work is not defined by media fixation. The centuries-old labels of painters, sculptors and photographers dissolve in his and the practice of many other artists of his generation in favor of new content and emotional impulses. At Koenig 2.

Art Opening
Amygdala Ikebana
Alexander Ruthner’s work can be understood as a kind of indeterminate trigger. They are fragments of a pictorial treasure collected by the artist, which call up supposedly »experiences« from digital spaces. Nevertheless, the works do not reproduce clear-cut signs from the collective memory that could be tapped by mere identification. At Galerie Gabriele Senn.
