MAGIC CIRCLE

Pentagram, witch talon, black cat. The Kunstraum Niederoesterreich won’t quite become the Blocksberg, but it will create space for an always topical figure: the witch. In the exhibition “Magic Circle” curators Katharina Brandl and Daniela Brugger convene contemporary and historical positions related to the witch in queer-feminist cultural production. Power, knowledge, and identity are thematic fields explored in this exhibition. The history and present of female appropriation of power and magical practices play a central role. An exhibition about the social backgrounds of witch trials, nail art, magic spells, witch courses, fortune-tellers, and their queer-feminist power.

Artists: Johanna Braun (AT), Veronika Burger (AT), Veronika Eberhart (AT), Karin Ferrari (IT/AT), Roxanne Jackson (US), Robin J. Kang (US), Ariane Koch (CH) and Sarina Scheidegger (CH), Chantal Küng (CH) und Mara Züst (CH), Katja Lell (RU/DE) and Laura Nitsch (DE/AT), Tabita Rezaire (FR), Suzanne Treister (UK)
