The Exhibition

An architect, a landscape gardener and a photographer spent ten days touring Vienna posing the same question to passers-by at positions chosen at random: “What do you need in difficult situations in your hometown?” The highly divergent responses and positions are documented on recordings and in photographs.

Accordingly, the exhibition presents a random cross-section from our city through the very personal viewpoints of its inhabitants, opening up a whole range of further questions instead of providing clear answers. Any judgement or categorisation of the individual positions is deliberately avoided — it is solely the responsibility of the viewer to do so.

On view in the exhibition is a complete inventory and momentary excerpts (kairos*), whereby the visitor is challenged to react both to the question posed as well as the collected replies, so extending the exhibition by new positions.

A project by Sandra Häuplik-Meusburger, Verena Holzgethan and Nikolaus Similache; audio engineering: DonZiggy

* kairos: noun (chiefly Theol.), an auspicious moment for decision or action. Greek, lit. ‘opportunity’.
