“We have to put Duchamp’s urinal back in the restroom.” — Tania Bruguera

“Touch the Reality” showcases concepts and practices that transfer artistic work into a socio-political domain and how they employ an aesthetic of the performative, artivism, and the public space in the process. To what extent do contemporary performance practices affect a repoliticization of art and society? How can a discussion of these issues access new territories? How can new forms of articulation evolve in a direct exchange with artistic practices? A cause of present day conflicts, according to philosopher Jacques Rancière, can be found in an ambivalent understanding of democracy, which possesses a growing potential for conflict, as current political developments illustrate.


A focus of the exhibition – realised in a cooperation between the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, Austrian Federal Chancellery, and KulturKontakt Austria and its artist-in-residence programme – is the exchange between the Cuban artists José Fidel García, Grethell Rasúa, Dania González Sanabria, and Susana Pilar, who reside in Vienna for three months, with Vienna-based artists in the development of joint projects.


Artists: Akram Al Halabi, Catrin Bolt, Tania Bruguera, Lana Čmajčanin, Miss G a.k.a. Giorgia Conceição, Pêdra Costa, Masha Dabelka, EsRAP , Kadir Fadhel, Fidel García, Markus Hiesleitner, Elvedin Klačar, Sylvi Kretschmar, Camila Lobos, Sandra Monterroso, William Ruiz Morales & Naïma Mazic, Leandro Nerefuh, Female Obsession, Susana Pilar Delahante Matienzo, Jianan Qu, Dudu Quintanilha, Grethell Rasúa, Dania González Sanabria, Ela Spalding, Anna Witt.
