VIENNA. FISH STORIES

– postponed due to COVID-19 –

In an exhibition at Vienna's Northwest Railway Station and in four performative excursions, different modes of transport, multi-denominational processional devices and pop-up exhibitions are used to comment on and question various fish-related "stations" in the city of Vienna: the former habitats of Viennese fish in the Danube Canal and Danube, fishing areas and fishing clubs, historical fish markets, fish factories, fish traders and restaurants, and finally ice-cold fish wholesale warehouses and fish cemeteries on the outskirts of the city. In this way, aspects of the structural, social and cultural transformation of the city are reflected in the places where fish is caught, traded and processed.

Inititated and executed by Tracing Spaces (Michael Zinganel and Michael Hieslmair).
