Shrugging shoulders, shaking heads, incomprehension — if these reactions to contemporary art seem familiar, this encounter is for you. According to philosopher and art critic Klaus Speidel, contemporary art’s reputation of being difficult, uncomfortable or ludicrous is well deserved. Which is why he will not only explain Ines Doujak’s work during this dialogue and guided tour through the exhibition Geistervölker, but also make space to openly discuss difficulties and criticism. So if you are skeptical concerning contemporary art, find it difficult or know people who do, sign (them) up.

The tour will be held in English. We kindly ask you to register via or directly at the box office in Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier.

The guided tour is free with an exhibition ticket and will be held in German.

Please wear a FFP2 mask at all times. Children up to 6 years are not obliged to wear mouth-nose protection.
