Vienna Contemporary, D32
Marx Halle Vienna
In the framework of Verein K’s residency for four international art critics Visiting Critics Vienna 2019
a panel discussion will be held on the role of art criticism.
How does art in Vienna look from the perspective of international art critics? How do they see the role of criticism today? Are there national differences in writing about art? In the final discussion of Verein K’s residency program Visiting Critics Vienna, we will address these and many more questions.
During an intense 10 day program, the participants of Visiting Critics Vienna 2019 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. Eventually they write about an exhibition, event or artist related to the contemporary art scene in international or Austrian art magazines – but before that the four guests talk at the Vienna Contemporary about their impressions from Vienna and Graz and their conception of criticism.
