“Off to Vienna!” can be this spring’s motto for everyone who is curious about the multitude of current artistic ideas and manifestations generated in the city of Vienna. Now is the chance to gain comprehensive insight into the Viennese cultural scene at over 50 different locations simultaneously. Destination Vienna 2015, a synopsis of over 70 positions in contemporary art featured at both Kunsthalle Wien’s locations at Karlsplatz and Museumsquartier, expands throughout the urban space: numerous local galleries, off-spaces, cultural clubs and cultural institutions of Vienna all tune into a temporary orchestration directed by Destination Vienna EXTENDED.

Destination Vienna 2015 is more than an exhibition. It resembles a polyphonic piece of music created by the co-existence and interplay of all sorts of instrumental parts and voices. With this image in mind, Kunsthalle Wien presents selected contributions from artists of different generations, working in diverse methods and varying in their use of media. 

The exhibition portrays a quite idiosyncratic, surprising and pluralistic view of the Viennese art scene. It is not a list of bestselling artists, no competition of top (emerging) artists, no tribute to temporary or regional mainstream. Instead, Destination Vienna 2015 allows for voices to rise that address the (im)balance between a “state of the art” and individual desires for artistic practice. Destination Vienna 2015 thus mirrors the diversity of contemporary artistic vocabulary and media that are characteristic for the international art venue of Vienna.

Artists: Adrian Alecu, Ovidiu Anton, Anna Artaker, Kurdwin Ayub, Josef Bauer, Cäcilia Brown, Adrian Buschmann, Hugo Canoilas, Julian Charrière, Mitya Churikov, Eva Egermann, Christian Eisenberger, Christian Falsnaes, Marina Faust, Lukas Feigelfeld, Daniel Ferstl, Andreas Fogarasi, Heinz Frank, Heribert Friedl, Peter Fritzenwallner, G.R.A.M., Kerstin von Gabain, Till Gathmann, Aldo Giannotti, Sofia Goscinski, Julian Göthe, Eva Grubinger, Harald Gsaller, Rebekka Hagg, Michael Heindl, Nicholas Hoffman, Ana Hoffner, David Jourdan, Barbara Kapusta, Eric Kläring, Tonio Kröner, Tina Lechner, Sonia Leimer, Paul Leitner, Los Destinados (Julius Deutschbauer / Klaus Pobitzer / Panos Mylonas), Constantin Luser, Nana Mandl, Ralo Mayer, Christian Mayer, Sarah Mendelsohn, Melitta Moschik, Hans Nevidal, Josip Novosel, Denise Palmieri, Michael Part, Nicola Pecoraro, permanent breakfast (Friedemann Derschmidt / Abbé Libansky / Karin Schneider / Barbara Zeidler), Lilly Pfalzer/Sergio Valenzuela, Karin Pliem, Johannes Porsch, Hanna Putz, Andreas Reiter Raabe, Ritornell, Valentin Ruhry, Maruša Sagadin, Ari Sariannidis, Johann Schoiswohl, Leander Schönweger, Misha Stroj, Philipp Timischl, Jenni Tischer, Octavian Trauttmansdorff, Nadim Vardag, Salvatore Viviano, Tanja Widmann, Birgit Zinner
