viennacontemporary 2019

The state of the arts

For the past few years, viennacontemporary has taken advantage of its geographic location to shine a particular spotlight on artistic innovations in Central and Eastern Europe. Highlights of the 2019 programme include ZONE1, a selection of young artists with a personal connection to Vienna, and Focus—works that reject the very idea of boundaries, including national ones, and provoke reflections on such topics as memory and geopolitics. An accompanying series of engaging talks and conversations, Next?, will tackle the present and future of art.

We are delighted to offer our valued customers a chance to attend an hour-long guided tour of the fair on Friday 27 September at 3pm—the theme will be ‘art collecting for everyone’. Attendees will also be presented with a VIP ticket, granting them and a guest full access to the fair itself and an exclusive lounge, as well as entry into several participating museums around the city—and even a complimentary shuttle service to scurry to and fro between them.

To attend the tour and claim a ticket, please write to Please note that the number of passes is strictly limited; they will be awarded to the swiftest respondents, who will be notified by email.
