“Brave New Virtues. Shaping Our Digital World,” Vienna Biennale for Change 2019

On the basis of which values can the utopia of an economically and socially just and fair as well as ecologically sustainable future become reality? “With the possibilities of art, design, and architecture, the Vienna Biennale will contribute to shaping a future based on values,” Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, General Director of the MAK and initiator and head of the Vienna Biennale, states. Artists, designers, and architects from all continents will take a stance towards the future we really want.

Artists, designers, and architects from all continents will take a stance towards the future we really want. The VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE: BRAVE NEW VIRTUES. Shaping Our Digital World focuses on brave visions on handling artificial intelligence and new technologies, on shaping innovative (urban) ways of work, on new ways of living (together), and on responsible consumption.

The organizers of the Vienna Biennale—MAK, University of Applied Arts Vienna, Kunsthalle Wien, Architekturzentrum Wien, and Vienna Business Agency, as well as Slovak Design Center as Associate Partner and AIT Austrian Institute of Technology as non-university research partner—will explore meaningful and actually applicable values for Digital Modernity in several locations.

Vienna Biennale
The Vienna Biennale is the first event of its kind to combine art, design, and architecture, with the aim of generating creative ideas and artistic projects to help improve the world. Its category-spanning, interdisciplinary approach and combination of artistic ambition and the creative economy open up new perspectives on central topics of our time and thus promote positive change in our society. The Vienna Biennale was established with the understanding that we are living in a new modernity in which the digital revolution penetrates all areas of our life and is thus fundamentally changing our civilization. Today's Digital Modernity offers considerable potentials for lasting improvements in quality of life as well as innovative living concepts and business models in every sector.
