Klima Biennale Wien 2024

Until 14 July 2024, the Klima Biennale Wien will be held in Vienna, Austria – with the vision and innovative power of art, the Klima Biennale Wien spurs the paradigm shift toward a liveable and sustainable future on the planet, through participation, collaboration, and awareness. 

The Klima Biennale Wien faces the challenge of making the highly complex and acute issues of global change, the climate crisis, species extinction, and the impacts on the human-nature fabric visible and tangible for everyone.

The profound and sweeping changes in the Earth’s system necessitate a holistic debate. Therefore, the concept and working method of the Biennale focus on multiperspectivity: the Biennale sees the future as a shared design task and claims a space for reconciling different and sometimes contradictory positions. Such frictions are fertile ground for transformations in society. 

In its exhibitions, in public spaces or as part of the festival programme, the Klima Biennale Wien brings together current positions from the fields of international contemporary art, design, architecture and science that point the way to socially and ecologically just world relations. Based on the principles of care and sustainability, the Biennale proposes concrete alternatives by questioning turbo-capitalist concepts and overcoming patriarchal and colonial paradigms in favour of collective, inclusive and common-good strategies.
