The programme offers more than 200 Events. Countless members of the international arts and culture scenes will participate. The week will be packed with a rich array of exhibitions, openings, talks, film premieres, guided tours, performances and open studio days.

The motto of this year’s event is “Creating Common Good.” There will be an international group exhibition Kunst Haus Wien on the subject curated by Robert Punkenhofer, VIENNA ART WEEK’s artistic director.

Dorotheum and the auction preview of the “Contemporary Art” auction will provide the backdrop for high-calibre discussions and lectures on the subjects of the “Art Market and Art Criticism” as well as “The Art of Temporary Use”led by international names.

All are cordially invited to attend!
