In the realm of queer identities, simply standing firm, creating the space and not accepting change in our self-definition is often one of the most political actions we can take in the course of a minute, a day or a lifetime. Speaking our truth, insisting that people acknowledge our partners, our chosen families, our life path and self-definition – this is the moment when art resonates in our daily lives. For some, this is a practice to strengthen and express one’s identity, but it can also be a heroic act for those looking for a way to create such a space for themselves.
Queer Art Spaces Vienna 2023 acknowledges the ways in which sharing stories becomes a way to create queer spaces, within and beyond artistic practice. These could include the following themes:
-Breaking down barriers
The organizers are inviting artists, institutions, queer individuals and communities to share their stories in an open call. From the submitted stories, statements, artworks, photographs, videos etc. the exhibition will be curated and presented at Kunsthalle Exnergasse.
During the 8 weeks of the exhibition, the organizers are planning an extensive and cross-institutional programme of events with talks, performances, workshops, lectures, guided tours, etc. The aim is to bring together institutions, art institutions and art lovers in the programme. The aim is to include institutions, interest groups and queer communities in the programme and thus to document, discuss and reflect on queer spaces in a diversity. Through this project, queer art and lifestyles will also be brought to Vienna outside of Pride Month.
