Vienna’s Spring of Art

Vienna has a new art festival: It's called Foto Wien and will be held every two years, for the first time from March 20 to April 20, 2019. The festival is organized by Kunst Haus Wien. Foto Wien focuses its attention on the medium of photography and reveals the variety and potential of the local photography scene. More than 120 program partners – museums, exhibition spaces, galleries, photographic institutions, art universities and off-spaces – take a new look at happenings in the world of photography in Austria and abroad during the four weeks of the festival.

The festival headquarters are located at the Post Savings Bank in the 1st district. Several of the festival's own productions as well as workshops, discussions and symposia are scheduled to be held in the building designed by Otto Wagner. For example, Austrian and French artists deal with the phenomenon of the city in the exhibition "Zones Urbaines / Urbane Zonen" (Urban Zones).

In the Liechtenstein Garden Palace, Art Austria shows the variety of Austrian Art from April 4 to 7, 2019. Works by artists who live and work in Austria will be on display.
