(Vienna, 25 July 2013) VIENNA ART WEEK, now in its ninth edition, has become an annual fixture in Vienna’s cultural life. Once again, this year’s art festival – initiated by the Dorotheum and hosted by Art Cluster Vienna – has managed to encourage and foster cooperation between global and Austrian art-world players.

“Projecting Worlds”, the motto of this year’s festival from 18 to 24 November, draws on topics and positions related to the role of artistic expression in reinforcing identity. Within a framework of exhibitions, interventions, studio visits, gallery tours, curator-led excursions, artist talks, lectures, performances and podium discussions, VIENNA ART WEEK 2013 spotlights the artist as the creator of artworks and narrator of his or her own cosmos, focusing on the dialogue between the artist and the viewer.

Open Systems is to publish a new quarterly journal on various subjects and an interdisciplinary online exhibition within the context of ARTSLAB, while building new zones of networking beyond its function as an online forum in a virtual space. There shall also be a platform for discussion organised in four cities (Vienna / Istanbul / Ljubljana / Innsbruck) by their respective guest editors. In addition, an exhibition featuring a selection of the four editions under the title of “Open Systems 1-01-04/13” shall be held in Vienna.

Guest editor Andrei Siclodi of “Out of the Commodity!” (issue 4, winter) focuses on possible productive ways out of the current dilemma of the commodification of artistic practices as research and knowledge production.
ARTSLAB 4, “A word on a tree like a body as thing”, is curated by Federica Bueti. Artists are storytellers, but of different kind. They tell stories not to explain, but to explore the language we commonly use to talk about our identities, about who we are, what we know, and what kind of politics we embrace. The exhibition brings together artists who work with spoken and written words.
