What to Do in Vienna This Week

Dennis Buck »The Threat (portrait)«, 2022.

Essentials May 23–29

We present the »Weekly Essentials« with our picks of events and exhibition openings. We know that daily life is a challenge but maybe those structures can give help to find a way trough it. We encourage everyone, to show solidarity with Ukraine and all the people who have to flee by going to demonstrations or by making donations in kind or direct monetary donations.
