Film and video presentations
As part of the Cinema program, curator Olaf Stüber presents films and videos of Austrian and international artists that were submitted by the galleries participating in viennacontemporary. The selected films and videos will be shown as part of a daily program with fixed starting times for the individual works. For viennacontemporary 2017, Stüber chose the theme of my own little happiness. The program brings together artists’ films and video works exploring the subject of happiness and the search for the little moments of happiness – or centering around the failing search for happiness.
The program will be announced soon.
Cinema is made possible with the kind support of the Austrian Federal Chancellery.
