LOSING CONTROL Line-Up

November 18, 2021, 15:00 – 20:00

Nordwestbahnstraße 53

1020 Vienna

Due to limited space capacity we kindly ask you to register at registration@viennaartweek.at with the note Line-Up.

Losing Control is the motto, which can be interpreted in many different ways, and invites artistic exploration of experienced or threatened loss of control. Wrapped up in the theme is the hint that man is unable to direct his destiny on many levels. In art production, loss of control stands for wild ecstasy as well as for conscious letting go and immersion in creative flow.

At the LOSING CONTROL Line-Up, discursive formats, film screenings and performances will line up in rapid succession for one afternoon. Top-class guests from art and science invite the audience to engage with the experienced or threatened loss of control.
