Opening: Oct. 18, 2017, 7 p.m.

Building on its experiences with its 2015 Critic in Residence programme the KUNST HAUS WIEN launched a Curator in Residence Programme and, in January 2017, it is inviting Jade Niklai and Yasmine Ostendorf. In interviews with visionary artists and creatives the curator duo has drawn up sustainability strategies that revolve around the topics of environmental pollution, climate change, depleting resources, and biodiversity.
As a ‘work in progress project’ the presentation formats for the exhibition are shaped by the results of the surveys. These surveys take around sixty minutes and comprise a questionnaire on the sustainability debate, the personal motivation to be a part of it, innovation strategies, and proposed solutions. The aim is to highlight new artistic perspectives within the international sustainability debate and to re-contextualise the legacy of the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
