The University of Applied Arts Vienna opens its buildings and presents its activities as every year: Final projects, exhibitions in the central university buildings and exhibitions in the city will be framed by a multidisciplinary program. Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz will be closed to traffic and become a meeting point, a stage and a square for the four days of the festival.

Come visit AIL at Georg-Coch-Platz 2 and explore Angewandte's newest location.

In the heart of the former postal savings bank, the AIL interweaves references to the themes and questions addressed in the exhibitions and projects of the various classes and departments housed within Otto Wagner's building during the Angewandte Festival 2024.

Students and members of the various departments (Digital Arts, Art & Science, Angewandte Performance Lab, Peter Weibel Institute, Art&Science School for Transformation, Coding Lab, Experimental Game Cultures, Global Challenges and Sustainable Development) show snippets, add-ons or playful hints of the main exhibition in their calssrooms. They provide concentrated insights into artistic discussions and methodologies, offering a comprehensive view of the contributions throughout the building.

Hallabudda Re-enactment

from the research project SENSING LIVING SYSTEMS

Part of Angewandte Festival 2024

The PEEK research project SENSING LIVING SYSTEMS is working with international artists and systems scientists on the development of multisensory scenographies. Principles of living systems are translated into olfactory, auditory and tactile artworks/artefacts and are used experimentally. Created with artistic means the scenographies are supposed to provide sensory impressions helping for a better understanding and resonating with living systems. At the Angewandte Festival, we invite you to a sensory experience in a Hallabudda, where we offer closer insights into the first project symposium with a documentary film by Zoe Gendron and Daniel Jamernik.

Jeanette Müller, Paul Divjak, Alexandra Graupner, Anna-Maria Irgang with the Hallabudda-Experts Oksana Lemishka and Taras Komisaruk

Refractive Perspectives

3*10^8 m/s

The annual exhibition by the department of Art & Science presents a collage of twenty-one artistic works, spanning from the socio-political to the deeply personal around the enigmatic topic of light

What is light, and what is darkness? Do they reside within us or outside of us? While some cultures worship sun gods, others use sunlight to censor depictions of their deities. Is darkness a sanctuary or a breeding ground for fear and nightmares? Are nocturnal creatures inclined towards darkness by default, or is it a necessity for self-preservation? How do we acknowledge the presence of something unseen? How do we preserve memories, and how will we be remembered?

The annual exhibition Refractive Perspectives. 3*10^8 m/s by the department of Art & Science presents a collage of twenty-one artistic works, spanning from the socio-political to the deeply personal. Through their diverse reflections on the enigmatic ‘source of life’, the artists illuminate various facets of human experience and perception, inviting audiences to ponder the complexities of light and its profound significance.

The audience is presented with two distinct exhibition spaces, each weaving a unique narrative on light. One space offers a more abstract, interactive experience, engaging visitors in physical participation and emphasizing the sensory journey. It invites exploration, allowing individuals to determine the depth of their engagement and the insights they glean. This immersive experience can evoke playfulness, mystery, or even a sense of danger. In contrast, the second setting delves into introspection, exploring philosophical themes that serve as tools for personal reflection. Here, visitors are encouraged to contemplate light's implications across various domains — political, religious, ecological, feminist, cultural, and beyond.

Giving Life with Light with Carolina Páez Vélez

Part of the exhibition Refractive Perspectives. 3*10^8 m/s

The goal of the workshop is to find new ways to understand and reconnect with plants, one of our many companions within urban spaces.

The workshop will be divided in two sections. In the first moment we will talk about photosynthesis and pigments (like chlorophyll). For that, the participants will create an extract of the leaf with alcohol and will perform a separation using the thin layer chromatography principle.

In the second moment of the workshop we will talk about an alternative process in photography and printing: chlorophyll printing. This technique uses the knowledge of photosynthesis and the pigments within leaves to print images/patterns on them with light. At the end, the participant will create an image to be printed on a leaf using this technique

Worms, Stars and Metabolism

A lecture performance with earthworms as special guests

Part of the exhibition Refractive Perspectives. 3*10^8 m/s

What do worms have to do with Heidi Klum? Although snail slime is increasingly becoming a trendy beauty product, the natural, the slimy, and the decomposing still tend to evoke feelings of disgust. Yet worms, bacteria, and other critters are doing all the work, gently transforming matter from one realm to another. Isn't that worthy of admiration?

In this lecture-performance, accompanied by composting earthworms as special guests, we will delve into the hidden powers of metabolism, be it biological or societal. Decay is slay and metabolism is going viral. Whether it happens in your guts or when you drive a car, metabolism is everywhere, and once you see it, it will become a star. The next time you see a worm, it might just be on the cover of Vogue.
