GRANNIES AGAINST THE RIGHT is a civil society platform dedicated to the protection of democracy, the rule of law, the welfare state, and human rights. For VIENNA ART WEEK, GRANNIES AGAINST THE RIGHT will operate a GRANNY Café to serve as a meeting place and space for action.
Promises of salvation found in art and politics will be critically discussed, their potential for democracy and civil society explored.
“We want to talk to people, encourage them to open their eyes and look around in the world we live in now. We want to challenge them to stand up for a life that is worth living for all.”
