curated by_vienna 2016: Meine Herkunft habe ich mir selbst ausgedacht [My Origins I Made Them Up]


What is it that prompts artists to increasingly turn towards their role models and how are the corresponding homages, references and quotations revealed in their works? Which continuities, and also breaches, become apparent when it comes to creating a guiding figure?

On the occasion of curated by_vienna 2016, the Vienna Business Agency and its creative center departure are organizing a symposium, where this year’s topic will be discussed from an artistic, theoretical and curatorial point of view.
