During an intense 10 day program, the participants of Visiting Critics Vienna 2020 organized by Verein K have discovered institutions, galleries, the events Curated By, Steirischer Herbst, Vienna Contemporary and have had personal meetings with artists, theorists, curators and other actors of the Austrian art scene. Time for a discussion about their perception of art in Austria and their conception of criticism.

What makes art in Austria specific? How does the Austrian context here compare to art in other cities and countries? What are highlights of this year’s Steirischer Herbst and Curated by? And what is the role of art criticism in 2020?, are some of the questions that will be addressed in this panel discussion.
