From 22 September to October 1, WIENWOCHE 2017 spreads the ‘sweetness of doing nothing’ throughout the city. Not as a privilege of the rich, but as an aspiration to delink work and working time from nation, state, and capital.
WIENWOCHE 2017 was inspired by a repeatedly appearing graffiti in Vienna’s urban landscape that reflects the plea of social movements: ‘Morgen mach ich blau / Tomorrow I won’t work’. This is not a simple demand not to work the following day – it is a political demand for a different society in which work does not mean coercion and separation.
Instead of fetishising work, DOLCE FAR NIENTE that, subsequently, burns us out, DOLCE FAR NIENTE demands to revolutionise both work and time.
The sixth edition of the WIENWOCHE festival and its 14 projects are looking for ... work: when we want, how we want to, and how we can. Join the movement for DOLCE FAR NIENTE instead of the one for private property, a money-driven economy, and wage labour! Feel invited, no matter whether you are a documented or an undocumented worker, no matter which abilities or social disabilities you got, no matter which language skills you possess, no matter if you are a slow or a fast worker!

WIENWOCHE is a Viennese festival that experiments with merging creative practices and activism in different scales and formats and from different sides of art and social movements. Since its beginning in 2012, WIENWOCHE has taken place in September every year. The festival sees cultural work as engagement in social, political and cultural debates, with the aim of advancing them and making them visible. WIENWOCHE intends to push the boundaries of cultural and artistic practices and make them accessible for all social groups living in Vienna.
