The art of improvising art

The recently abandoned administrative headquarters of Austrian Post, an imposing turn of the century building in the first district of Vienna, built for public officials in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, is a rare location for a contemporary art show.



The show was on just for 5 days, as the building will be converted to residences. Improvisation is an Austrian specialty, and here it is exercised to such a degree that it becomes hard to decide if a coat hung on a rack or a strange door plaque is part of the show or if it was just accidentally left there.

Parallel Vienna, Dominikanerbastei 11 in Vienna´s first district, was on show from September 20 to 25, 2016.
