HOT QUESTIONS. COLD STORAGE. The new permanent Exhibition at the Az W

Category: Exhibition 28. February 2022

The Architekturzentrum Wien is Austria's only museum entirely dedicated to architecture, it has the most comprehensive collection on Austrian architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Conceived by director Angelika Fitz and curator Monika Patzer, the new permanent collection exhibition "Hot Questions - Cold Storage" has now opened at the Architekturzentrum Wien.
From 2004 to 2021, the display collection "a_Schau" presented essentially a chronological view of Austrian architectural history.

In the meantime, the Architekturzentrum Wien's collection has grown considerably, with over 100 estates and bequests added, as well as several individual projects.
The new exhibition collection "Hot Questions - Cold Storage" is arranged thematically rather than chronologically, dealing with seven central questions – "hot questions" of the present – by means of original objects, models, drawings, furniture, fabrics, documents, photographs and films.

These are questions like "Who makes the city?", "Who takes care of us?" or "How do we survive?" on the basis of which cultural history is treated as regional architecture history. The topics range from Red Vienna and the Karl-Marx-Hof to architecture in Vorarlberg and "Burgenland Brutalism".

The plurality of cultural, social, economic and technical aspects of architecture is made visible in this walk-in knowledge archive – in an extensive and instructive presentation that will offer visitors plentiful new perspectives on Austrian architectural history. (written by Cem Angeli)
