May 4th 2023, 9am – 5pm
Fanny Hensel Saal, Anton-von-Webern Platz 1
Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien
What does mobility mean for cultural workers and artists? Who has opportunities to move from place to place and who does not? What are the working and living realities of EU third-country nationals in Austria? How can social and ecological justice play a role in this?
In the joint event „Mobility: Privilege and Problem“ we bring together actors – from academia, civil society, politics and administration – on the topic of mobility in art & culture in the context of global asymmetries. Working groups in World Café format as well as a public discussion will enable a condensation of the topic across disciplines and open up space for critical engagement with
An event organized by the Department of Cultural Management and Gender Studies (mdw), the Austrian Commission for UNESCO, and IG Bildende Kunst.
