A group exhibition that invites visitors to interact with the three extensive artistic installations by Christine & Irene Hohenbüchler, Susanne Kutter and Martin Walde.
Following the presentation of the Sonnwendgarten collaborative project, journalist, translator, and university lecturer Alexander Behr will talk about the current popular subject of discussion – the good life for all – from a socio-economic perspective. After a group lunch break, the artists Christine Hohenbüchler and Irene Hohenbüchler, Iris Andrascheck and Hubert Lobnig, and Isa Rosenberger will present their projects and works, which are informed by a participatory artistic practice and developed in exchange with local communities and neighborhoods. Musician and author Christiane Rösinger from Berlin will conclude by reading from her books. The Viennese musician Veronika Adamski will accompany her on piano.
The event will be held in German
