When the “Gastarbeiter” left their homes

“My temporary sculpture ‘Overwriting History’ is a pedestal built with 200 old bricks produced in the late 19th century by Ziegelböhm. By choosing this material I connect various moments in the construction of Vienna by the hand of foreign labour.” Roberto Uribe Castro talks about his work, shown at AJNHAJTCLUB curated by Bogomir Doringer. mehr lesen

“I decided to read the memorials themselves as choreography scores”

In the past four weeks, Vienna was once again host of numerable international performance and dance artists that participated in the ImPulsTanz Festival. In various locations the audience could witness performances that deal with all sides of society. Future Read in Concrete and Stone for example invited the Viennese people to explore three Yugoslav monuments in a very physical and participatory way, to read their history as part of the future. We met the director, Bojan Djordjev, to talk about his inspiration for the piece, the state of these monuments today and the way they might be able to impact society. mehr lesen

She is chasing a story that hasn’t been told

Leyla Cárdenas was an Artist-in-Residence at Q21/ MuseumsQuartier Wien in June 2016. Her contribution to the exhibition AJNHAJTCLUB – curated by Bogomir Doringer – was developed during this stay: two huge Atlas statues made of aluminum foil, „carrying the weight“ of a scaffold which dominates the exhibition’s design. Read here about her idea behind it. mehr lesen

AVEC – Popmusik mit Tiefgang und Gefühl

Die Kritikerinnen und Kritiker […]

AJNHAJTCLUB exhibition

Austria celebrates the 50th anniversary of the contract of April 4, 1966 between the Republic of Austria and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia establishing a basis for the legal and voluntary migration of labor, and so creating the “Gastarbeiter” (Lit. guestworker) phenomenon. Article 9 of this historically significant contract specifically endorsed the promotion of this mobile workforce’s own cultural and social life, and led to the founding of over 100 workers social clubs. AJNHAJTCLUB, curated by Bogomir Doringer, explores the history of this community as reflected in their clubs, which were not only regarded as spaces for maintaining and bolstering cultural identity and for providing a sense of participation, but also provided a vent for nostalgia towards the old homeland. Admission is free. mehr lesen
