KUNSTBOGEN, 1060 WIEN

Homelessness can affect anyone, and it almost always means the loss of social support and opportunities for participation. As a by-product of our economic logic, homelessness will remain a challenge for our society, as long as the rent spiral continues and living spaces are also objects of speculation. In some cases, it means a long journey through institutions for the homeless individual. Eventually, after stepping into their own four walls, disillusion often arises because an apartment is not necessarily a home.

What makes an apartment a home? As regards to this topic, former and current homeless persons will develop their own sound installations within the framework of a series of workshops. These will be presented at WIENWOCHE, in the newly founded art space KunstBOGEN on Wiener Gürtel.

By appropriating immaterial means of production, we get a piece of cultural participation back. We take on the privilege of art production and acquire skills that go beyond conventional exploitation logic. Together we will find new forms of expression that are exciting!
