Confrontation and Cooperation instead of Representation – A New Agenda for Cultural Policy
European symposium on current issues in cultural policy

Date: Thursday 20. May 2021; 9:30 – 19:00

Location: University of Applied Arts Vienna: Auditorium Vordere Zollamtstraße 7

Curated by Michael Wimmer in collaboration with Anke Schad-Spindler, Martin Fritz and Aron Weigl

The event is dedicated to the questions of which lines of conflict exist within and around the cultural sector after a year of pandemic, who is affected by them, how they can be made productive in terms of cultural policy, and which perspectives should be more strongly included in decisions in the future. The discussion will be based on the problems of “publicity, justice, inclusions and exclusions, and over/life.”

Michael Wimmer is in close contact with a young generation of artists. In dealing with their work he is experiencing the world in ever new ways and draws from it many inspiration. At regular intervals you will find here a selection of artistic works that have addressed Michael Wimmer in a special way.

Her preferred forms of artistic expression include spoken theater, dance, performance, readings, radio and film.

> Verena Zangerle
Verena Zangerle was born in Rum/Tyrol, lives and works in Vienna/Austria. She has always been fascinated by the power that abstraction has not to imitate reality, but to generate something new. Medially she moves in the fields of drawing, painting and printmaking.

As the third artist I am now allowed to present the accordionist Paul Schuberth. He works as a freelance artist in the field of “classical, new music” as well as in the field of “jazz, improvised music, world music”.
