Q21 covers an area of 7000 m². At its center is the aspect of "creation". Within the scope of an artist-in-residence program, which was created at the same time as Q21 in 2002, international guest artists are invited to Vienna to implement projects here. Some of the artists are represented with their works in the exhibition space of Q21.
The "frei_raum Q21 exhibition space" shows temporary internationally curated group exhibitions with free admission. Since 2012, this series has focused on socially critical and sociopolitical topics. On a guided tour of Q21, guest artists open their studio doors, where established initiatives document their work. Guided tours of the current exhibitions are also available.
Backstage Tour Q21
Q21 is home to around 50 initiatives, associations, agencies, and editorial offices working in the field of culture. This creative space brings the aspect of "creativity" to what is one of the largest art and cultural districts in the world. During this tour, visitors may be lucky enough to get a glimpse behind the studio doors of the guest artists, and the initiatives based at Q21 talk about their work. The tour also includes a guided visit to the current exhibition at the frei_raum Q21 exhibition space (First Thursday of every month, 4.00 pm in German, 5.00 pm in English).
