Minna Henriksson: Works on Paper
Artist-in-Residence Minna Henriksson talks about her contribution to the group exhibition "Under Pressure - On Forms of Authority and Decision-Making Power" curated by Sabine Winkler at frei_raum Q21 exhibition space. She investigates both lobbying and political engagement around the Finnish paper industry and its trade with South Africa after the Second World War.
During this tour, visitors may be lucky enough to get a glimpse behind the studio doors of the guest artists, and the initiatives based at Q21 talk about their work. The tour also includes a guided visit to the current exhibition at the frei_raum Q21 exhibition space (Exhibitions April-November).
It is a special responsibility of art mediation to introduce young people to contemporary art and culture. For some youths, a visit at Q21 can be their first contact.
Exhibition tours allow international curators to provide an insight into the projects they have been working on.
Q21 provides workspace for around 50 initiatives, organizations, agencies and editorial offices working in the cultural sector. This creative space is spread across over 7,000 sqm within the MuseumsQuartier Wien. In this way, Q21 brings the “creative” aspect into one of the world’s largest complexes for art and culture.
