Several of them will be working and living in Vienna in the coming months as part of the quartier21 Artist-in-Residence program.
Alongside the fashion creations, videos, photographs, installations, sculptures, and textile art presented in the exhibition, an accompanying program will feature performances, film screenings, music sets, lectures, and workshops for kids and young adults.
The exhibition is taking place in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of the MuseumsQuartier Wien and is organized by the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs, the Spanish Embassy in Austria, Instituto Cervantes, the Flemish Representation in Vienna, and Unit F's "11 festival for fashion & photography."
