Pre-Programme in the City

↳ for the Angewandte Festival 2021
of the University of Applied Arts Vienna
〔11.5〕 – 〔22.6〕


In 2021 we reconquer the analogue space.

With the pre-programme series, the University of Applied Arts Vienna spreads out into public space and sends out signals of the Angewandte Festival into the city. With this we acknowledge the analogue and the physical, to provoke movements in the city and to incite encounters. The contributions are intended as thematic stimulations that will be continued within the framework of the Angewandte Festival between 29 June and 2 July 2021.

The Facts of Life and stories about ourselves, the world and being inside and outside

A collaborative performance by CDS students on the topic Du Contrat Social (On the Social Contract), which was developed as a trailer for the Angewandte Festival. Throughout the Arenbergpark, excerpts from the years’ projects will be shown, facts of life and other stories are spoken about. The presentation formats vary in form, dimension and duration – colourful and quiet, monochrome and loud. Children are welcome.

EARTH 2 A billboard exhibition

Development of life on earth has picked up speed. This man-made acceleration is bringing about a kind of change that will soon make human life on earth impossible. Where do we come from? Where do we want to go? What kind of place are we looking for and what do we do with it when we find it?

echo/ghost – Tryout Audio-Walk

Starting from a joint engagement with the term archive, students of Language Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna have developed audio walks: at the heart of these projects lies the universal question about stories that curate history and about the violence with which they are enforced – and the question what could “writing despite everything”, a writing that enters back rooms and the backs of pictures and that reshuffles the cards, look like?

Collective Action Viewer

The impulse and location for the meeting is the “Collective Action Viewer”, a media installation by Verena Tscherner & Joerg Auzinger at Karlsplatz. Katharina Gsöllpointner, head of the International Programmes for Sustainable Developments department, is intensively involved with art and the digital, especially in times of climate change; explosive topics that Tscherner/Auzinger are also pursuing in their current artistic work and that will be discussed together.

Jeremy Wade: Love Is Not Romance, honey! Lecture Performance by The Battlefield Nurse

Where is love?? In an impossible possible political ritual Jeremy Wade’s 5000-year-old Battlefield Nurse alter ego is sick of how crucial terms such as care, repair and love have been sold down the river in the violent present. We need love to serve as force of interdependence with intimate strangers and all earthly creatures. Sing it!! The Battlefield Nurse will lead a participatory intervention, a fake political ritual repositioning love as a hyper relational ethic.
