Stadtarbeit – City Work



Kulturverein Kopfhoch


A changing city is a city that has to live with construction sites. These urban necessities usually go hand in hand with the inconveniences and strains of everyday life. The BLAUSTELLE – DEVELOP YOUR CITY workshop invites all festival visitors to perceive construction sites as symbols of change and artistically interpret them in new ways. Each and every visitor can actively participate by using cyanotype – a photographic printing process – to aesthetically interpret construction sites within Neubau. Abstract reproductions of construction sites and their elements are produced on site, thereby creating mementos of a temporary situation. Consequently, in the course of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, an exhibition will form, comprising different perspectives and approaches which gather individual perceptions of urban changes. The event will take place weather permitting only.
