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.
