Presentation of the new audio stations in the permanent exhibition 'Hot Questions — Cold Storage': Meet the people behind the voices.

The audio stations encapsulate the range of voices in the city, replaying them in the exhibition space of the new permanent collection. The audio experience expands the space by adding interviews with users and experts, atmospheric sounds and stories about the projects in the exhibition. At the centre is the engagement with Hot Questions, expressed with a variety of original recordings, for instance of somebody strolling on the Donauinsel who summarises a discussion of many years in the city by saying that when they built the Donauinsel, everybody said it was nuts. While he thinks, and says so, that the Donauinsel was the best idea a mayor has ever had!

An evening when the protagonists, whose voices can be heard in the exhibition, can be seen in person.
