A joint exhibition of Kunsthalle Wien and Wiener Festwochen | Freie Republik Wien

This essayistic group exhibition is dedicated to works of art and artistic theories that connect the cosmos, and especially the sun to social and political movements. In the selection of works by international artists, one focus is on the moving image – on cinema, film, and video as media of light. Yet works in other media likewise radiate hypnotic, feverish, glowing, menacing affects. The sun, broadly speaking, figures both as an abundant source of life and energy for political struggles and as a symbol of warning, its vast mass and lifespan contrasting with the brevity of human life on planet earth.
