With the recent political developments in Austria, artists and citizens in many parts of the globe have grappled with the issue of response.  How does one respond to such an event?  How does the international community voice its reaction?  

The panel “should I stay or should I go” will try to investigate and discuss the strategies and goals of cultural politics in Austria on Monday, the 6th of March, 7 pm at the Tanja Grunert and Klemens Gasser Gallery, in Chelsea. Klemens and Tanja are generously giving us their space.

“should I stay or should I go” is initiated by two collaboratives, 16Beaver Group and re:austria, both working to increase cultural and political debate and to further the exchange of ideas and art in New York (see note below). By organizing this panel we hope to raise awareness of the gravity of the situation concerning Austria and to foster a discussion about the range and efficacy of responses to these recent political changes.   

The following have agreed to participate: Renee Green (artist US), Carola Dertnig (artist Austria/US), Robert Fleck (critic and curator Austria/France), Christoph Thun Hohenstein (ACI, NY) and Raimund Abraham (architect Austria/US). Moderator: Rene Gabri

About us:
re:austria was formed as a response to the dramatic political changes in Austria, with the goal to keep a constructive and active discussion etc., alive and going in the next few years, by organizing demonstrations, panels, and events.
