ZONE1 2024: Spotlighting Emerging Talents

Video: Curator Bruno Mokross Shares His Inspiration Behind the ZONE1 Section at the Fair

This year’s ZONE1, the fair’s section focusing on emerging talents with a connection to Austria, will be curated by Bruno Mokross. With ten solo exhibitions of artists who live or have lived in Vienna and are represented by local and international galleries, Mokross wants to examine what attracts international artists to Vienna and how the living conditions here affect their art:




Bruno Mokross works as an artist, curator, and software developer in Vienna. He runs the independent exhibition space Pech and is one of the founders and main organizers of Independent Space Index, the network and eponymous festival of Viennese project spaces.


A regular highlight since 2015, the exhibition format exclusively presents the works of talented artists under 40, who either live, work, or have received their education in Austria. Appreciated by institutions, art experts, and visitors alike, ZONE1 provides a unique space for these artists to make their mark on the international art scene and has established itself as a stepping stone to accelerate young artist’s careers.
