What would EuroPride be without a host of events that are not only fun but also address and advocate the equality of LGBT people with the rest of the population? EuroPride 2019 in Vienna will be no different. A varied program is guaranteed in the two weeks between June 1 and 16, 2019.
Queer Art Space Vienna (May 29-June 14, 2019)
The exhibition "Queer Art Space Vienna" at Kunsthalle Exnergasse/WUK attempts to provide insights into Vienna’s dynamic queer art scene. Here "queer" refers to artistic and cultural practices, which provoke interactions between artwork and spectator - by questioning heteronormative power relations - and therewith shifts in the sociopolitical context. Various performances, film screenings, lectures, and talks accompany the exhibition. Information and program
