Muslim*Contemporary is a multidisciplinary, participatory and dialogical project that aims to reflect on the place of participation of Muslim communities in Austrian society through education, art, dialogue, activism and culture. The aim is to create spaces where important social discourses can be reflected and negotiated through representation. The dialogue in these spaces should not only take place through the exhibited objects and installations, but become a place of conversation in the truest sense of the word (διάλογος /diálogos). The aim is to open spaces for discussion and debate through different formats. There people can listen, question and negotiate. How do we want to live? How do we want to shape our common, diverse future? But it can and should also be a place of development, empowerment and enabling.
