Vienna’s art scene is about more than just ornate museums filled with art-historical treasures. A new generation is bursting onto the city’s art scene, carrying the torch of Viennese art with young, innovative energy. We produced short documentaries showing sides of Vienna that few travel guides or quality-of-life lists cover: In #contemporaryvienna: Art, meet the players driving the change and moving Vienna’s art world into not just the present but also the future. Younger gallerists and curators, a maverick museum director, a philanthropist, a veteran gallerist, even international curator Hans Ulrich Obrist weigh in on what’s going on and what’s to come.
Vienna’s high quality of life rests on good bones. Supporting the metrics that consistently put Vienna at the very top of international quality of life rankings is an underlying foundation that few are aware of or even see.
viennacontemporary has produced short documentaries showing sides of Vienna that few travel guides or quality-of-life lists cover: In #contemporaryvienna: Infrastructure, see why the city works so well and how seemingly simple components like thought-through transport hubs or even food and water can make all the difference. Learn how Viennese neighborhoods stay affordable, mixed, and safer than ever. And meet the people guiding and shaping Vienna as it rapidly grows – among them the mayor, a top architect, and the city police chief.
