Project presentation and launch of the new study information platform "Kiosk – Platform for Diversity and Equal Opportunities".

You want to know more about studying at the Academy? What to study? How to apply? Where to begin? The new online-platform Kiosk tries to answer some of these most important questions regarding studying at the Academy.

The new platform for an inclusive, diverse and easier accessible study information will be presented in an interactive afternoon, inviting everyone to participate and to try out how to use it.

We cordially invite all employees and students of the Academy as well as all people interested to participate at the presentation and get a first insight to the new platform.

Moderated by: Alexandra Stanić

“What if...? A never-ending story…”

'What if...?' explores the myriad and diverse possibilities that lie within the enigmatic corridors of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. The questions are vast, some answered, some lingering in the shadows. Is there even an answer? Join us for an evening of laughter and contemplation as we draw a spotlight on the blind spots within the Academy humorously and critically.

In conjunction with the launch of the Website Kiosk at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, the curators Val Holfeld and Mirjana Mustra invited the artists Danilo Jovanovic, Sara Hawy and La Terre’, to question the given structures within the academy.

As part of the event, four workshops for pupils and young people on various artistic topics will take place in the morning. The workshops are designed and conducted by students of the Academy. The participating educational institutions are:

  • Mittelschule Bildungscampus Sonnwendviertel
  • Mittelschule Seltzergasse
  • AusbildungFit Jobtrain
  • Berufsschule für Handel und Reisen

Event Location:

The event takes place at the main location of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Schillerplatz 3, 1010 Vienna. Arrival is possible by public transport (see accessibility at Wiener Linien). If you arrive by car, there are two marked disabled parking spaces available in the inner courtyard (access via entrance Markartgasse).

The main building of the Academy at Schillerplatz has two main entrances due to different physical disability needs.

Entrance Schillerplatz:

  • For persons with visual disabilities: a tactile guidance system leads from the sidewalk down the right side of the historic staircase to the porter's lodge (ground floor)
  • For persons with walking disabilities: the historic staircase is equipped with additional handrails.
  • For persons with limited mobility: a sign leads from Schillerplatz entrance to the barrier-free Makartgasse entrance.

Entrance Makartgasse:

  • For persons with limited mobility: via an intercom system (stele on the left) you reach the porter, who opens the automatic gate.
  • In the passage, a ramp on the left side reaches the large automatic entrance door, which can be opened with a button to the right of the door.
  • From there (Souterrain) you can reach the elevator for access to the other floors. The porter is located on the ground floor.
  • Opening hours entrance Makartgasse: from 8 to 20 h.

The "Sitzungssaal" (E1) is located on the ground floor. When entering via the Schillerplatz entrance, the room in the building is accessible at ground level. If you enter via the Markartgasse entrance, use the elevator from the Souterrain to the ground floor. The elevator is equipped with wheelchair accessible controls. The building has a (tactile) guidance system.

Barrier-free toilets are located on the ground floor as on every other floor of the building. The restrooms are accessible without Eurokey.

In order to be able to take all rescue measures in the event of a fire, wheelchair users are requested to register with the porter (either via the intercom system at the Makartgasse entrance or directly with the porter's lodge at the Schillerplatz entrance).

We want to make it easy and enjoyable for as many people as possible to attend the event. Should individual assistance be required during the event with regard to barrier-free requirements, please contact us.
