Center for the Exchange of Opinions – Views of a City

Hans a. Blast



where: in front of the old cinema of Sandleitenhof, Liebknechtgasse 32, 1160 Vienna

when: June 6th, 4 – 8 pm
June 11th – 13th and 18th – 20th, 4 – 8 pm

Together with a mouthless wooden sculpture, the artist will be present. Here, passersby may express their opinions, speak up, criticize, ponder, and if they wish – write it all down or draw it.

A growing collection will visualize a diversity of ingrained opinions and viewpoints.

Starting June 13, a short video offers an online glimpse of the process.

As a place with a social sculpture , the “Center for the exchange of opinion” is available as a gathering place: Here the opinions and attitudes of the “people” shall be discovered and collected: from life plans and prejudices to graffiti, criticism and anger.

The “Center for the exchange of opinion” also sees itself as a meeting place for cultural diversity.



Hans a. Blast works in the fields of interdisciplinary social sculpture, photography, sculpture, text, stage, host/parasite synergies and handicraft. He lives and works as an artist in Vienna.
