In the framework of the project Theories of Urgency the Institute for Art and architecture (IKA) carries on its research on the topic of HITZE by undertaking a series of interviews and discourses with people whose work forms a relevant contribution to the field. The project intends to confront selected findings of the past two terms related to the city of Vienna to a more global understanding of the topic.
The event will be held in English
