Gespräch zur Kunst im öffentlichen Raum
Lecture by Nil Yalter

Herrengasse 13, 1010 Wien

"...the political events were so strong, it was simply not possible to sit in the studio and not to participate ..."

What Nil Yalter tells in a conversation about the mood of the '68s in Paris, could be a quote from the present. How does art relate to political changes? Which strategies do artists use to engage in the discussion?

These questions accompany Nil Yalter in her artistic career and she will answer them again and again, again and again under different circumstances. The position of women, migration, the living conditions of the workers are themes that Nil Yalter uses with a wide variety of artistic methods, which oscillate between sociological research, ethnography and the art-internal, radical will to experiment.

Even now, we are experiencing a moment of radical political change in Europe. An orientation to current role models in history and a discussion about possibilities is more important than in a long time.

The event is in English.

Katalin Erdödi (1980, Debrecen) is a curator and cultural worker. She works in the field of contemporary art and performance, with a special focus on transdisciplinary cooperation, politically engaged artistic and curatorial strategies and art in public space, which in the broadest sense is to be understood as a social, architectural and discursive space. Most recently, Erdödi worked as an artistic director of the imagetanz festival and curator in brut Wien, and from 2018 is curator of steirischer herbst. She lives in Vienna and Graz.

The series to the Gespräche zur Kunst im öffentlichen Raum are a cooperation of Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Niederösterreich and the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich
