Part of the Exhibition "Ear Appeal"

WUK | Kunsthalle Exnergasse
Ultra-red are featured artists in the Kunsthalle Exnergasse exhibit "Ear Appeal," curated by Doreen Mende. Seizing upon the theme of sound and political inquiry that is central to the exhibit, Ultra-red conceive of the ENCUENTRO as an opportunity to learn about the various strands of mobilization occurring in Vienna. Leading off with the question, "What is the sound of the war on the poor in Vienna," Ultra-red's ENCUENTRO is part of a larger engagement with Vienna. In 2007, Ultra-red intend on realizing a public art project in Vienna based on responses to the question, "What is the sound of the war on the poor in Vienna." As in all Ultra-red projects, the 2007 public work will arise out of exchanges with local struggles.
The exchanges that will inform Ultra-red's collaborations in Vienna begin with the ENCUENTRO on October 21. Ultra-red invite all community organizers, activists, and politically-engaged artists to gather on October 21 and collectively reflect on the issues of poverty and precariousness in Vienna. Ultra-red members Manuela Bojadzijev and Dont Rhine facilitate the ENCUENTRO as we reflect on the question, "What is the sound of the war on the poor in Vienna?"
