The curatorial collective What, How & for Whom / WHW took over the artistic leadership of Kunsthalle Wien in June 2019. Their program starts with an international group exhibition featuring more than 30 artists and extending to all spaces of Kunsthalle Wien. The artists in the exhibition offer a critique of the harsh processes that are undermining emancipatory political values which try to provide a dignified life for the many. Equally important, the presented artists suggest that the former horizon of a good life could become something else, replaced by ideas drawn from degrowth, feminism, ecology and decolonial thinking.
