Explore the manifold universe of the Angewandte

From 29 June to 2 July 2021, things are finally bubbling up again around Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz. The activities of die Angewandte are spreading out into the city. The exhibitions of the departments present the works and projects that have been created in the past year. They show that die Angewandte has not stood still. 

Guided tours lead into the city and through the exhibitions, performances, interventions and other formats that are dispersed throughout Vienna. 23 advertising pillars can be visited in the 23 districts of Vienna. They act as anchors for the exhibitions in the university buildings and carry their themes into public space.

This year’s third edition of the Angewandte Festival will be a hybrid format between analogue and online events in the various buildings of the Angewandte as well as in public space.

You can expect exhibitions, tours, performances, interventions, lectures and talks of all the department of the university between Design and Fine Art, Art Sciences and Art Education and more.
