Public tour: HUNDERTWASSER – SCHIELE / Imagine Tomorrow

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928–2000) shaped 20th-century art beyond the borders of Austria as a painter, designer of living spaces and pioneer of the environmental movement. His life-long, intense exploration of the personality and oeuvre of Egon Schiele (1890–1918) is largely unknown.

Katerina Andreou - Zeppelin Bend

“In my ongoing research on free will on stage and its subjective nature, I explore different body practices and try to approach new skills as if they were new technologies. I keep learning in order to keep unlearning. This saturation of rigour and discipline is paired with a desire to tackle matters such as control and power structures. It helps me sort through knowledge and constitute my own personal culture. Which training for which performance? Which effort for which goal?

Hugo Canoilas. On the extremes of good and evil

Hugo Canoilas. On the extremes of good and evil

Hugo Canoilas, Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize winner 2020, uses the tradition and history of painting and object art to redefine and expand the connection between installational and performative strategies. Along with art history, he also references sociopolitical developments and the philosophical and art-theoretical discourses it involves. Currently, the all-dominating coronavirus crisis is already bringing into sharper focus virulent and interconnected topics such as the climate crisis, environmental degradation, and the ever-widening gap between poor and rich countries. Canoilas’s work deals with these developments and the anthropocentric worldview on which they are based. It ties in with ideas of a careful and egalitarian human treatment of nature and its creatures—ideas that have evolved in ongoing discourses around the Anthropocene and Posthumanism.

María do Mar Castro Varela - Double Bind

María do Mar Castro Varela - Double Bind

Postcolonial readings in the arts and culture and in cultural education have recently become ever more popular. However, these mostly recite rather than critique what has already been said. Even though more critical debates on and with theories of postcoloniality are urgently needed, for example to expose the unbearably dominant Eurocentric exhibition and communication practices.

Jaha Koo - The History of Korean Western Theatre

Jaha Koo - The History of Korean Western Theatre

Celebrating the centenary of Korean theatre in 2008, the South Korean theatre maker and composer Jaha Koo realised that there is actually no space for Korean theatre tradition: what is regarded as Korean theatre is largely determined by the Western canon. But why are the South Koreans so proud of this Western interpretation? And why does everyone keep referring to Shakespeare? It raises questions about tradition, self-censorship and authenticity.

mumok Kino: Feminism Against Family / Rose-Anne Gush, Barbara Kapusta, Sophie Lewis

Noncommercial pregnancy is a capitalist hinterland. Commercial surrogacy is capitalist industry. This screening departs from the call to abolish the family at the heart of Sophie Lewis’s Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism against Family (2019). It includes video and animation works that question the politics of gender, the labor of gestation, parenthood, childhood, and property relations. By invoking possibilities of familial relations beyond their bourgeois, patriarchal, and heteronormative forms, these works explore ways of living that suggest a commitment to transformed kinship and structures of support and care that include solidarity.
