13 Jan 2018 | Anna Witt – Belvedere 21 – Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Vienna
For the solo exhibition at the Belvedere 21, Anna Witt develops a new work that sheds light on the local situation of a large urban development area with regard to the imaginations of an optimized working and living environment. What value do we attribute to which occupation? What does it mean to interrupt or even stop working? What role does political organization play in this context and what visual vocabulary does it use? As a point of departure Anna Witt uses both virtual renderings of the adjacent quarters around the main railway station as well as real experiences of people who work here in many different sectors, from construction, railway and service to banking and investment.
