Panel Discussion: Queer Art Activism

Tuesday, June 8, 18-20h
Panel discussion: Queer art
Venue: T├╝rkis Rosa Lila TIPP (Linke Wienzeile 102, 1060 Wien)
Free enter
The panel discussion on the topic of Queer art opens the possibility to exchange ideas on how art affects every part of our lives. How the colors of the Villa reflect the colors of the real world around us. We raise the question of what it means for us to intervene at this given moment to change the social patterns that belong to the oppressive heteronormativity.
What Queer art means to all of us!
We celebrate together the 40th anniversary of the Villa.
