Viewing socio-politically explosive issues through the prism of visual arts, the Kunsthalle Wien is taking a closer look,through two new exhibitions, at the relationship between human beings and machines and social utopias in 1960s’ and1970s’ architecture. As a space which comprises the broad diversity of international contemporary art and its related discourses, the institution is known for presenting innovative exhibitions and communication formats. Here, visitors are encouraged to participate in in-depth discussions not just about contemporary art, but also about its socio-political implications.
